Rondebosch police are looking for five people who broke into a flat in Rosedale Road on Wednesday 6 September.

According to police spokesperson Warrant Officer Lyndon Sisam, the burglars threatened a 21-year-old woman and covered her head with a blanket while they searched inside.

“Four were men and one was a woman standing in her lounge. One man told her to be quiet and covered her head with a blanket, while the others ransacked her flat, taking a laptop, Xbox game, cellphone and clothing,” she says.

The victim was unharmed and no weapons were used during the crime.
