Farm attack, elderly couple injured in violent panga attack, De Wildt

A savage farm attack took place on the night of 16 December 2020, between 23:00 and 24:00, in De Wildt, Vissershoek, in the Gauteng province of South Africa. A gang of attackers armed with pangas attacked an elderly couple in their home and violently assaulted them. The attack was very traumatic for the couple who suffered numerous injuries and cut wounds.

It is unclear how many attackers there were, but it could have been as many as six who were involved. They overpowered the elderly couple, ransacked the home and fled the scene with, amongst other things, a TV, cell phones and a decoder. All roleplayers responded and found the home in disarray with blood smeared throughout the home.

The necessary medical attention for the couple was arranged and the couple were hospitalised.

The police are investigating the attack but there have been no arrests. There is no other information available at this stage.
