Limpopo police say they are on the trail of two armed suspects who attacked two women on a farm in Roossenekal on Friday afternoon.

Police spokesperson Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said the armed suspects entered the house on the farm, held them hostage and proceeded to assault them. 

"The suspects managed to drive off with the farm owner's vehicle, taking along the two women," said Ngoepe in a statement.

"The police were notified and reacted swiftly. One of the women was later found dumped along the Lydenburg road about 20 km outside Lydenburg town in the Mpumalanga province and the other one was found in the same town."

Both women are currently in hospital recuperating, police said.

The stolen vehicle was also recovered in Lydenburg with the suspects still at large. 

The police are appealing to anyone with information that can lead to the apprehension of these suspects to contact Captain Richard Boshomane at 079 894 5501 or the crime stop number 0860010111.
