Four attack local farm

Another armed robbery took place on a local farm.

On Sunday evening (26 July) at 19:30 four armed men wearing balaclavas gained access to a farm cottage at Freedom Hill Estate, near Drakenstein prison on the Wemmershoek road.

According to police spokesperson Capt Louise du Plessis it is alleged that the complainant went outside to investigate why his dogs were barking.

The man then heard a scream from inside the house and ran back. On his return he was confronted by men who were holding the other occupant of the house.

One of the suspects struck the complainant on the head with a metal tool and both occupants were then tied up.

The suspects then ransacked the house and fled with electronic equipment, cellphones, cash and four firearms.

Three of the firearms have been deactivated; however, a baby browning with six rounds was also stolen.

The suspects tried to start the complainant’s vehicle, but when they failed to do so, they fled on foot.

Various Franschhoek and Paarl farm watch groups joined in the search for the men, who have still not been apprehended.

The victim who was struck on the head received medical treatment on the scene.

Anyone with information is requested to contact the Paarl Police on 021 807 4139.
