“Three armed suspects arrived at the property in a grey Toyota double cab and held up the resident and her domestic staff at gunpoint. The gang tied up the domestic worker, a gardener and fled the scene with a large sum of cash and jewellery. No injuries were reported,” he explained.

Sydenham SAPS attended the scene of the crime.

Mathios added that armed robbers also invaded a home in Rockdale Avenue in Westville at around 2: 55pm on Sunday.

“The Westville resident noticed that a white Mercedes Benz had pulled up outside his home and assumed that family members had arrived to visit him. He opened the gate without making sure who he was letting in,” Mathios said.
