AN Assagay resident was lucky to survive a home invasion unharmed after she awoke to find two intruders in her house in the early hours of Friday morning.

Blue Security community and media liaison officer said two intruders, one of them armed with a knife, gained entry into her Admoore Road Home through a kitchen window.

“One of the robbers held her up at knifepoint while the other suspect gathered valuables including jewellery, an iPad, a cellphone, a wallet, a television and a bag full of shoes, before fleeing the scene in a silver grey Toyota Tazz (NU 12699). No injuries were reported,” Mathios said.
