A 3 year old boy was threatened with death and a female Boerboel was shot and killed during a robbery at a property in Frasers, Tongaat on 25 May 2019.

At approximately 08:08 the Reaction Unit South Africa Tongaat Operations Center received a call from a woman reporting a robbery at a tuck shop in an area known as Jans Corner. The caller also confirmed that shots were being fired on the property.

All available Reaction Officers were dispatched to the scene and upon arrival established that four armed suspects entered the property and held up the tuck shop. While two suspects robbed the business their accomplices entered the owners residence which is situated on the same property and held up his family.

The armed men threatened to shoot the businessman’s three year old son if the family did not hand over their valuables. After stealing cash and jewelry the suspects exited the residence and shot the family pet that began barking at them.

The gunmen then fled in a silver grey Honda Ballade with registration ND 899…. A spent 9mm cartridge was recovered.

Reaction Officers are currently searching for the gunmen.
