Durban North domestic workers were left traumatised but unharmed, after a gang of armed robbers forced their way onto the property where they were busy working and held them up at gunpoint, last week.
Blue Security community and media liaison officer, Andreas Mathios said three suspects had managed to gain entry onto the property in Portland Place where they accosted the two domestic workers after tampering with the gate just after noon.
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.
The two domestic workers were not harmed during the incident, but were left traumatised and received debriefing counselling from independent counsellors at the scene.
Greenwood Park SAPS and crime intelligence detectives attended the scene of the crime.
