Famous actress Andrea Nomasebe Dondolohad a shock of her life when she encountered a naked and bleeding man in one of her bedrooms on Tuesday afternoon.

The award winning Dondolo(pictured, left) said she hadtaken a power nap after a day’s hardwork, and had unwittingly left the front door slightly ajar to allow her dogs to roam freely.

“I heard children calling my name and I woke up but did not go outside. I normally help them with their homework and I thought they had come for the class; I felt tired that day,” she said.

Then the surreal moment happened; movements and someone actually flushing the toilet.

“After a few minutes I heard the toilet door closing and my instincts told me there was other company in the hoise. I panicked and called the police,”she said.

The Lingelethu West Saps members arrived in no time and Dondolo could not believe what she saw: a bleeding and naked man. In her house.

“One of my neighbours said the man was beaten by angry residents after he had tried to hijack a car in upper Litha Park. He then fled into my house and I still do not know how gained entrance, because my dogs are very aggressive towards strangers,” Dondolo added.

The man(pictured, far right) was immediately arrested and will appear in court soon.

Dondolo thanked the police for their response but she said she felt “traumatised and her privacy violated” by this incident. “This man could have killed me in my house...I thank God for saving my life,” she said.

Constable Nyalambisa confirmed the incident and said the man will remain behind the bars because he has other pending cases. Meanwhile Colonel Michael Reitz has warned residents to be extra careful after a spate of burglaries in Litha Park.

“ There is an increase in burglaries, which are specific to the Litha Park area. There is no specific modus operandi but the burglaries take place during the day, when people are not at home.

There is also increase in burglaries in schools and churches,” said Reitz. He said electrical items like Plasma TVs, computers, sound systems, chairs are favourable items targeted by thieves. “We urge the community not to buy stolen goods , if you are offered suspicious items report these to the police,” he said. City Vision readers have reported seeing a green Corsa bakkie with usually two male and one female occupant driving around in the area.Constable Nyalambisa is on 0824691700
