Lansdowne detectives are looking for four suspects in connection with a Lansdowne house robbery that occurred last week.

Lansdowne police spokesperson Sergeant Nkululeko Mnyaka says the house robbery occurred on Tuesday 10 May at 07:00 in Lansdowne Road.

“The complainant, a 38-year-old woman, was at home when two unknown men and two women went into the house while the complainant was busy in her kitchen. (The suspects) threatened the victim with a knife, dragged her into her bedroom and told her to keep quite otherwise she would be killed,” Mnyaka says.

He adds the suspects demanded money and they took a wedding ring valued at R2000, a gold watch valued at R1000 and a cellphone. Other items taken include a Sassa card and other bank cards.

The suspects left the house on foot in an unknown direction.

A case of house robbery was opened for investigation.

No injuries were sustained and no arrests have yet been made.

Mnyaka confirms one suspect, a man, was described as dark of complexion, with a short haircut, thin build and tall, with “flat earrings” and wearing black tracksuit pants and a greyish hooded jacket.

Another suspect was also described as dark of complexion, wearing a brown jacket.

One of the female suspects was wearing black tights and Nike takkies.

The other woman wore a grey hooded track top and peach scarf around her head.
