A farm attack took place on 27 March 2019, at 19:15 in Rouxville, Free State province. The attack took place on the farm Blackwood. The farm manager Gerhard, his wife and children were on the farm when the dog started barking. Gerhard was packing away equipment when he saw two black men standing and asked what they were looking for they said they were looking for the man from the farm.
As Gerhard approached them, they attacked him they beat him with something he shouted to his wife to bring their gun and this caused the attackers to flee. Gerhard fled to his neighbor with his wife and children in his bakkie and the rural security plan was activated.
Farmers from the area secured the scene and handed over to police on their arrival. Farmers closed all roads and a search began in the area, but suspects were already gone.
Gerhard suffered a cut on his nose but everyone is safe.
