At about 20:45 a father in Nooitgedacht returned home and as his wife opened the door of their cottage a group of gun wielding suspects overpowered the family.
Several shots were fired and the husband, his wife and their little girl all sustained bullet wounds to their legs.
The suspects fled with the usual electronic equipment.
The Iron Fist Squad K9 Unit reacted to the call for assistance as the owner of the property is a client. The control center also dispatched EMS to the scene.
The Iron men tracked with the dogs but once again the suspects had already fled and were long gone by the time we arrived at the scene.
The suspects gained access onto the property by cutting the fence.
The family says they saw two suspects however we believe there were more than two.
Please be careful when you return home late at night. These ruthless criminals have the element of surprise and appear from nowhere in a flash!
The father was operated on yesterday morning and the mother and child was discharged from hospital this morning.
