Blue Security

Malvern residents were injured during a home robbery when an intruder viciously assaulted them with a garden shovel in broad daylight on Thursday afternoon.

Blue security community and media liaison officer Andreas Mathios said the resident was sitting in the garden at home in Bruce Road with a neighbour when he heard the screams of his domestic worker coming from the back of the property. The incident occurred at around 1pm.

“They went to investigate and found the domestic worker tussling with an intruder, who had jumped over the back fence into the property. The intruder then turned his attention to the resident and grabbed a metal spade and assaulted the resident and his neighbour with the spade. Both men sustained injuries to their head and arms. The suspect fled with two cellphones,” Mathios said. “Rescue Care paramedics stabilised the victims at the scene before transporting them to hospital.”

Malvern SAPS attended the scene of the crime.
