An elderly couple has been attacked in their Vredendal farm house on the Spruitdrif Road this morning.

Police spokesperson Warrant Officer November Filander says

“The elderly couple was woken by three men armed with knives in their bedroom around 03:00.

“The Afrikaans speaking suspects assaulted the 86 year old husband with a screwdriver and strapped the legs of his 84 year old wife,” said Filander.

He added that they then ransack the closet and took an amount of cash and thereafter the suspects took a firearm out of a safe and fled the scene in an unknown direction.

“It was later established that the suspects gain entry through the back door of the house which was forced open but the couple received medical attention on the scene, said Filander.

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of the suspects or the incident can contact the Vredendal police station on 027 201 3203 or Captain Carn Loock on 082 469 3132. All information will be dealt with confidentiality.
