Johannesburg - Seven armed men who robbed an East Rand home on Wednesday morning are still at large after stealing valuable items from the house, Bedfordview police said.

Spokesperson Captain Manaka Raphulu said the group of seven travelling in a white Mercedes SUV arrived at the house in Bowling Road around 11:30 and proceeded to remove the motorised gate before entering the yard.

"They found the helper in the house. They tied the 46-year-old woman up with cable ties, ransacked the house, took jewellery and household appliances and sped off in that white Mercedes," he said.

No shots were fired and no injuries were reported.
