Babysitter knifed in Wildenweide house robbery

WHILE minding a one-year-old at a Wildenweide home on Wednesday afternoon, a nanny was suddenly confronted by two armed robbers pointing a gun at her through a locked security gate.

The suspects threatened to shoot her if she did not unlock the gate.

Once opened, one of the men cut her on the arm.

She was then forced into a bedroom where one stood guard while the other searched the house for the homeowner’s firearms.

They eventually fled on foot with cellphones, jewellery and clothes.

The baby was not hurt.

A case of house robbery was opened at the Richards Bay SAPS and police are still searching for the suspects.
