The suspects forced her to open the safe before gagging and blindfolding her. The suspects beat and dragged her around the house, before fleeing with cash and firearms.

The police and farming community together with farming security companies immediately responded to the incident and tracked the suspects for almost 10km before poor light put a stop to the follow-up. During this time, some of the stolen goods were recovered.

Cynthia was treated for severe bruising sustained during the attack.
