Johannesburg - A security guard was shot and wounded and a woman was raped in a robbery in Bendor Park, Polokwane, early on Wednesday morning, Limpopo police said.

Lieutenant Colonel Malesela Ledwaba said four armed men broke into the back room of a house where two women were sleeping.

They raped one of the women and assaulted the other. They fled with the women's handbags and cellphones.

"A few blocks away, they ran into a security guard and shot at him. He was wounded in the arm."

The noise woke neighbours, who alerted the police. One of the women and the guard were receiving treatment at a local hospital. Police were still looking for the robbers.

      But the ANC goes on about land ownership. The priorities of the ANC government is seriously screwed up! Why are these issues not being addressed? Harsher punishment should be put in place for these animals! Bring back the death penalty!!!

      Dee, I can understand stealing because you have no money, but to rape, and shoot someone?!? I think it is you that needs to apply your mind I'm afraid

      OK, Dee, kill the murderers humanely then. That will make space in jail for the currupt ANC officials. When they are all behind bars, hopefully we will have a goverment that has time to address education and unemployment.

      Eversince I have been reading newspapers of most of rape happening in SA. I'd say 80% of them are committed in Limpompo province, what is wrong with this province,,, do they eat too much mopane worms? I'm sure it's their Viagra.

    Why the f*ck do they have to rape?!? Jeez, like being robbed isn't traumatising enough. So so tired of this bull dust happening in this country. I'm not a S.A citizen but I've also had enough of criminals who think they have a right to do what ever and when ever they want!

    Your boy Jacob Zuma reckons South Africa is safe, what's wrong with people, what possess one to behave in this manner, it really boggles the mind, ANC needs to sort the crime issue, they are responsible for every crime that happens/ committed under their watch. What are they gonna do about it????????

      themba.thwala.98 - 2012-06-27 18:25

      Why should they care. Crime does notaffect them. They have bodyguards remember? Besides, they've got bigger fish to fry - like fight for positions, then plot against each other as their elbow their way to awarding tenders to themselves and relatives

      Ayanda Mathunjwa - 2012-06-27 21:51

      The ANC has too much power, they have forgotten about the people they are suppose to serve and protect us, they all nice and safe in their houses and protected by bodyguards:(

      Bless Boswell - 2012-06-28 02:07

      Zuma refuses to reinstate the death penalty and he, himself has been charged with rape. Doesn't this tell you something?
