On Christmas eve, 24 December 2019, at 20:00, Wilma Ferreira (79) who stays alone was attacked, assaulted and tied to a chair in her home in Eldoraigne, Centurion. She was assaulted and left tied up for 15 hours. A black male and a black female, both armed with knives, threw the elderly woman on the ground and threatened to stab her.

The attackers threatened to kill her and demanded money, they then ransacked the home, tied the woman to a chair and covered her with a blanket. They then left with her bank card and her pin number that they forced out of her.

Ferreira was only found 15 hours later and rescued. Fortunately she was not seriously injured but suffered abrasions and was severely traumatized.
