She stated that she was returning to her Garden Street home with her son after she made a withdrawal from an ATM. As she was exiting the CBD two men approached her from the rear and forced her to the ground. In an attempt to prevent them from stealing her handbag she hid it under her body.
The suspects rolled her over and tried to pull her handbag. The victim only released the bag when she realized that the suspects were armed with knives. The two men fled the scene with the handbag containing R900 in cash, a Samsung cellphone, medication and the victim’s identity documents.
The woman and her son were not injured.
