Johannesburg - A nurse was tortured with a hot iron when she and her colleague were robbed in their Daspoort, Pretoria, flat on Wednesday, police said.

The 24-year-old walked in on four men armed with knives who had overpowered her flatmate earlier when she opened the door after they knocked, Captain Bonginkosi Amos Msimango said in a statement.

After they forced their way into the flat around 17:.30 they tied up the first nurse, also aged 24.

When her colleague came home from work at the Hercules Clinic later they tied her up as well and used a hot iron to burn her on her chin and elbow, until she handed over her car keys.

They fled with a laptop and the woman's orange Polo Vivo, registration number BM 93 SR GP.

No arrests had been made.
