Mathios said one of the suspects was wearing a blue overall.

The suspects, all armed with firearms, ransacked the house and grabbed valuables including jewellery, televisions, laptops, cellphones, R6000 in cash and a case of Jameson whiskey.

“They carried the stolen goods to an awaiting getaway vehicle, a white VW Golf, which fled the scene. The gang also stole the resident’s vehicle,” Mathios said.
