An attacker was stabbed in the arm by a woman in her Machadodorp farmhouse on Saturday morning. Hillel Coetzer, Afriforum’s head of security in the North region, said that five attackers gained access to the home before 02:00.
The other attackers tied the woman up after the attacker was stabbed in the arm. Two safes, of which the contents included firearms, were broken free and stolen.
The attackers fled in a white Toyota Hilux. According to Coetzer the woman lives alone.
“She was shoved around and assaulted but did not sustain any serious injuries,” Coetzer said.
