Woman was visitor, not resident – man

Following the article “Cops nab armed ‘robbers’ ” published in last week’s edition of DistrictMail, a relative of the victim approached the newspaper to set the record straight.

The article stated that two suspects were arrested after a woman fell prey to armed robbers outside her Strand home.

According to the relative, the 40-year-old resident from Grabouw went to a jewellery designer who resides in the Goede Hoop neighbourhood, at the time of the incident.

He says judging from video footage obtained, his daughter-in-law was followed from a convenience store she was at before the incident.

“After she arrived at the residence in Maggie Laubscher Street, she got out and locked the vehicle. She was approached by four men and held at gunpoint. They were neatly dressed, beside one who was wearing a T-shirt and jeans. The men grabbed her handbag and the vehicle keys before fleeing in the getaway vehicle,” he says.

He says the private security company, Gordon’s Bay Security (GBSec) and the local neighbourhood watch responded to the incident. He adds that police were alerted multiple times before they responded.

“The neighbourhood watch picked up her cellphone signal and used it to track the getaway vehicle which was hired in Paarl. The men were apprehended and her credit cards and R120 cash which she was robbed of, was recovered.”

The suspects, aged 17 and 19, appeared in Strand Magistrate’s Court last Thursday on charges of robbery with a firearm and possession of stolen property. The case was postponed to 12 December.
