SA Community Crime Watch received a call from Blue Security to report a house robbery on Brackenhill Road in Waterfall, Durban.

Local patrollers responded and found a man lying on his verandah with lacerations to his head, leg and arms.
When they questioned his wife it was established that three men in their late 20s smashed down their door and entered the house where the husband was severely beaten with a wooden beam.

The victim fought back as he was trying to protect his wife and two little boys. He defended him self with a bush knife and could have possibly injured one of the suspects in the process.

ER24 was dispatched to the scene. Hillcrest SAPS, Care line Crises centre, Shongweni K9 unit and Secure link responded to the scene.

An extensive search was done, but no suspects could be tracked.

The patient was transported to Hillcrest Private Hospital where he received medical attention and transported back home by SACCW.

A case of house robbery has been opened and an investigation will be conducted by SAPS.

“A big thank you to the dedicated patrollers of SACCW Waterfall for containing and preserving the scene. The quick reaction and response from ER24 is also valued and greatly appreciated,” said CPF spokesperson Steven King.
