Armed robbers assaulted couple during evening stroll

Durban North – A local couple’s New Year’s eve stroll was abruptly halted by armed men who assaulted and robbed them of their valuables.

The incident occurred at about 20:35 on Swapo (Broadway) Road on December 31, 2014.

According to Lt Raymond Deokaran, three men in a blue Opel Astra approached the couple under the auspices of looking for directions.

“The men pretended they were looking for a home in the area and the good Samaritan decided to phone for directions. One of the suspects then struck him on the back of the head with a weapon and yanked the cellphone out of his hand. His accomplices then grabbed the woman’s handbag before jumping into the getaway vehicle,” he said.

No arrests have yet been made.
