British tourists robbed at Addo
Johannesburg - A spokesperson for the Eastern Cape police, Priscilla Naidu, says two British tourists have been robbed of possessions worth about R71 000 while staying at the Addo Elephant National Park.
Naidu said the tourists had been woken early on Monday by two men who threatened them with a crowbar and a rock.
They ransacked the tourists' chalet at the Elephant House bed and breakfast and fled with cellphones, money, clothing, music players and other items.
Naidu said the robbers were found a short while later in Nomathansanqa village. The stolen items were found in their house and in nearby bushes.
The tourists, both of them men, decided to return to the United Kingdom.
The robbers, both aged 23, will appear in the Addo Magistrate's Court on Tuesday on charges of housebreaking and robbery.
