Farm attack, family tied up by 6 attackers, swift response sees 3 arrested, Newcastle

A farm attack took place on 10 November 2021, at 17:10 on a farm along the D96 road in Newcastle, in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. Six attackers, of which at least three were armed with pistols, invaded the farm and attacked a family who were assaulted and tied up.

The attackers ransacked the home and fled in the owners vehicle, a white cruiser with registration NN40409 and various household items.

The vehicle was later found abandoned.

All role players responded and with a well organised operation managed to track down three of the attackers and recover two firearms and some of the robbed items.

The other attackers are still on the run.

The family were not seriously injured during the attack.

The Newcastle police are investigating the attack.

There is no other information available at this stage.
