Police are seeking the assistance of the public in tracing two suspects involved in a robbery case in Camps Bay.

A 32 year old German tourist has reported a house robbery that occurred this morning at about 04h30 at a guest house in Sedgemore Road, Camps Bay.

Police spokesperson Captain Frederick van Wyk says the complainant alleged that he woke-up and found two unknown men in his bedroom. The one suspect was armed with a firearm and the other with two knives.

Van Wyk says they tied his hands in front with an electric cord then robbed him of 100 Euros and R3000 cash. They also took his laptop computer, video camera, digital camera and two cellular phones, said police spokesperson Captain Frederick van Wyk.

“It appears that the suspects gained access to the house through a kitchen window. It is unknown how they fled the scene.

“The complainant alleged that he came from his room to alert the police after the house became very quiet. Three other male German tourist who all slept in different rooms, were not aware of the alleged incident. They only woke up after the police arrived at the scene at about 04h50. They all arrived in Cape Town yesterday and intend to be in town for a few days,” said police spokesperson Captain van Wyk.

The complainant did not sustain physical injury during the incident and also declined trauma counseling that was offered by police added van Wyk.
