A farmer, Francis Davidson (74) was attacked in his farmhouse on 26 April 2023, at 18:00, by three attackers. He was held captive and brutalised by them for thirteen hours.
During the assault the attackers made themselves dinner, ransacked the home and only fled the following day at 07:00.
The attack took place on a farm in Maclear in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. The three attackers gained entry to the home by forcing open the front door.
Francis Davidson was assaulted, beaten with a blunt object, burned with paraffin, dragged around the garden and tied up.
He was found on 27 April 2023, still tied up laying injured on the floor by a neighbour who went to investigate after family members could not reach him.

It was reported in the media that Davidson survived a farm attack seven years ago in the same house.
