A man, who lives alone on a farm between Klerksdorp and Leeudoringstad, was attacked by robbers on Friday night and hit with a knife.
Northwest police confirmed on Saturday that Piet Pieterse was recovering in hospital after the attack and that the robbers had not yet been arrested.
Capt. Police spokesperson Aafje Botma says a case of robbery is being investigated. The robbers apparently gained access to the house through an unlocked door.
“Firearms were stolen and the robbers drove off with the man’s Mercedes, but the vehicle was later recovered. We are still looking for the robbers. ”
Pieterse’s Mercedes was allegedly left along the road between Leeudoringstad and Orkney, after which the robbers fled in another vehicle.
Two guns and a revolver were stolen.
