Jewellery, cash and clothing were stolen from a church in Winterskloof on Friday morning.

It is alleged that unknown men entered the church building in Azalea Lane and took an undisclosed amount of cash, jewellery and clothing. After taking what they found, the robbers continued to a house nearby where they tried to break into a car.

Their attempts on the parked vehicle were stopped by a neighbour who saw them and raised the alarm.

The robbers managed to escape into the nearby bushes. Police spokeswoman Inspector Joey Jeevan said a case of theft was opened. She said police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
