A Jeffreys Bay mother and daughter were admitted to a local hospital with serious injuries after being assaulted in a home robbery.
The women were home alone when they were attacked in their home in Mimosa Street at about 2:45 p.m.
The attacker(s) gained access to the house and it is believed that one of the women was stabbed in the head and mouth with a knife.
It is still unclear who contacted the police and whether anything was stolen.
On a Facebook entry the daughter posted earlier today it reads:
Today my whole life turn upside down…
Last night I said to my mom I’m not feeling well xx we will do a sleepover and movies tomorrow… And then Riki Putter phoned me at 2:44am saying my mom and gran have been attacked in their home… ? What?!
My gran got choked on her bed with a hard stick or metal type thing and while she’s fighting back screaming he cut my grans fingers where the pinky’s nerve is completely off… My mom ran into the room where she tried to fight him off and he stabbed her In the skull and stabbed her in the face… Her bottom piece of her lip completely cut open…. Micky my mom’s doggy came barking and the man ran out the back where he came in… (whole story is still unclear)
If my mom was not there my gran would have been dead today ?… My mom is my hero…
God saved the only family I have tonight… ? And for that I’m eternally grateful….
