Home invasion: Couple (77) violently attacked, Vanderbiljpark

On Tuesday 1 September 2020, at around 11:30 an elderly well known Vanderbiljpark resident and wife assaulted and robbed by home invaders. The 77 year old Piet Brand and his wife Terien, also 77, were violently attacked and robbed during a home invasion at their house in Wilger Street, Vanderbiljpark. Mr Brand was beaten over the head with a firearm. The attackers were armed with a pick-axe and crowbar.

Terien was overpowered when she arrived home from town. The attackers left with Mr Brand’s firearm, jewelry , cash and cellphones amongst other things.

We have to learn lessons everything such an attack happens because next time it can be us. One attacker told Mr Brand that they had watched him for a long time.

The Brands also have a gardener and house worker who were present. How well do they trust them to know that they did not give out information?
