Camps Bay attackers to hear their fate
Cape Town - The Western Cape High Court will hear pre-sentencing arguments on Tuesday in the case against five men who robbed houses in the upmarket Cape Town suburb of Camps Bay and assaulted their owners.
In one of the robberies a German tourist was raped.
The men, who were convicted last week, are Luis Momadi, Arnaldo Faife, Rogerio Laice, Sabastine Okele, and Thamsanqa Mafuya.
"These men broke into houses in Camps Bay where they threatened owners of the properties, [and] beat them up," National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said.
"A German tourist was raped by one of the accused during one robbery."
In all the cases of robbery, the victims were threatened with screwdrivers and other sharp objects.
