2013-11-12 18:12

Attackers have burnt a man’s buttocks with boiling water during a robbery on his farm near Wolmaransstad in North West.

Four men attacked the 50-year-old on the farm Doringhoek, said the police’s Brigadier Thulani Ngubane.

Before burning him, the robbers poisoned his dog and handcuffed him. They took 20 diamonds worth R600 000, two revolvers, and a Toyota bakkie, which they abandoned on the farm Rooibult.

In another attack in the area, on the farm Klipdrift, three men attacked an 83-year-old woman and four workers around 7am today.

They hit and kicked the woman in the face and body and forced her to accompany them in her bakkie. They released her 200m from the house. The bakkie was later recovered in Ottosdal.

No arrests had been made in either attack and the police were investigating. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
