On 18 January 2019, at about 03:15 the home of Louis Kirton was broken into in Humansdorp, at the ‘STOP N STAY’. His wife was surprised by the attacker and assaulted, she screamed for help and her 55 year old husband responded quickly. The attacker chopped at Louis with a panga. The panga split his arm open and broke the bones, Louis also suffered an open gash on his forehead that caused a fracture to his skull.

The attacker then fled with cell phones, laptop and food supplies. Humansdorp SAPS were contacted and arrived half an hour later and told Louis that when he is out of hospital that he should go and make a case. The whole house was full of blood and they told the residents to clean it up. They then climbed into their bakkie and drove away without investigating matter, looking around for suspects in the area or putting a guard there at the crime scene.

The ambulance took Louis to a Humansdorp hospital where he was immediately transported to PE.

It was also reported that Humansdorp SAPS were asked about the about the panga attack and they denied that there was such an incident. However after the enquiry the detectives did arrive 6 hours after the attack. Are the police actually protecting and serving?

Louis received an arm operation to repair the bones but was not put in a cast as the swelling is too bad and his head is swollen as a result of the skull fracture and his muscles have been severely damaged by the panga.
