Elderly Durban North woman blindfolded and robbed

Greenwood Park police are investigating a house robbery case after two armed men stormed a Durban North home and tied up an elderly woman, and fled with two television sets and a Toyota Yaris, recently.

It is alleged that the elderly resident was at home at around 9:30am when two men armed with firearms blindfolded her, while they ransacked her home.

Greenwood Park SAPS communications officer, Sgt Vincent Mthembu, said that the guy who helps out in the garden at the home was also present at the time of the robbery.

“It is alleged that the victim heard the garden boy saying ‘do not hurt her’, while the two suspects were busy inside the house. The garden boy then allegedly fled with the suspects,” said Sgt Mthembu. The garden boy has not been to the house seen since.

Sgt Mthembu has urged home owners to always screen their workers before employing them. “Screen your workers so that you know their background,” he added.

Sgt Mthembu said the elderly woman suffered visible bruises on her face. No arrests have been made as yet. “We are investigating the case further and are working around the clock to ensure the arrest of perpetrators,” he said.
