Glen Marais Family Ordeal
Glen Marais Family Ordeal: The police are investigating a case of house robbery after a Glen Marais family was held at gunpoint in their home. The family was ambushed in their Witstinkhout Avenue home by two armed men who stole money and their valuables. “It is alleged that on Wednesday at about noon, the complainant was outside fixing his gate when he was approached by one armed person,” said Kempton police spokesperson, Capt Jethro Mtshali. “The armed man held up his wife, daughter and helper and forced them inside the house.” While they were being forced into the house, a second person appeared and began ransacking the home, taking jewellery, laptop, tablet device, flat screen television and an undisclosed amount of money.
Police are still searching for the perpetrators and are appealing to anyone with information to contact D/Sgt Jason Brambaw on 081-463-6131.

Investigations are still underway.
