Armed Men Storm Umhlanga Home In Broad Day Light POSTED IN COMMUNITY, NEWS BY KYLE VAN REENEN
INCIDENT: HOUSE ROBBERY
SUBURB: UMHLANGA ROCKS
Just after 10 am on Wednesday, Marshall Security, Netcare 911 and the South African Police Services responded to a report of a house robbery which had occurred in Montague Drive, in the suburb of Umhlanga Rocks, north of Durban.
Reports from the scene indicate that four or more men armed with handguns, scaled a boundary wall to the property, before forcing entry to the home. The elderly homeowners and two domestic workers who were present at the time were confined to a bedroom whilst the armed men ransacked the home, taking an undisclosed amount of money and various electronic devices, before fleeing in two awaiting getaway vehicles.
Although the victims did not suffer any physical injuries in the ordeal, they were left severely traumatized and the assistance of the North Durban Victim Support Team was sought to counsel them.
The scene was secured and handed over to the South African Police Services for further investigation and processing.
Please stay away from the scene as Crime scene as the police are still busy with investigation
