Farmer robbed in Agter-Paarl Road

Farmers in Drakenstein are still very much at risk of being attacked.

In the latest attack which took place in Agter-Paarl, an area that has been plagued by farm attacks the past few years, a watch to the value of R65 000 was stolen when five men armed with knives and disguised with balaclavas robbed a farmer in Agter-Paarl Road. Many of the previous attacks in the area were committed by a gang matching this same description.

The incident took place on Wednesday 27 September at 21:30. Klapmuts police spokesperson Sersant Bernadine Arendse said two people were at the farmhouse when the robbers struck.

“A man was sitting on the porch outside and a woman was inside the house. When the robbers approached the house the woman locked herself inside the house and phoned the police,” said Arendse.

She said the men could not get access to the house and fled the farm. Various security vehicles and the Drakenstein Farm Watch were also quickly on the scene and tried to track the perpetrators, but they had vanished without a trace in the direction of Paarl Mountain.

No injuries were reported and Arendse said the police are investigating a case of robbery.

. Earlier this year the entire farming community was shocked when well known Paarl farmer Charles Back was severely beaten during an attack on his world renowned tourist destination farm, Fairview.

The valley still mourns the brutal murder of Klapmuts farmer Joubert Conradie who was gunned down in his house on his farm Uitsig almost a year ago, in full view of his wife and daughter. No arrests have been made.
