On January 19, a farm attack in Richard Juggling, Haenetsburg, Tzaneen, Limpopo around 3:00 left both the farmer and his wife in a serious condition. Mr. and Mrs. Wiggle both aged 70 were victims when four suspects broke into the main house by smashing a bedroom window.

The first thing the suspects did was take away the cell phones and immediately assaulted the elderly couple and tied them up with cable ties and electric cords. The suspects began searching the house, an employee by the name of Alex was also tied up and had his phone confiscated.

The suspects made sure that they left no evidence and cleared their tracks before fleeing in the Wiggle’s pickup van. The suspects threatened the couple and told them they would come back and kill them.

The employee Alex managed to free himself and rushed to help the farmer and his wife. As all the cell phones were taken, they were not able to raise the alarm. The Wiggles and Alex walked approximately one kilometer to get help from a neighbor.

The neighbor assisted and the police were alerted.

Both the farmer and his wife sustained head and body injuries and were taken to hospital for treatment.

The police have taken statements and searching for evidence. A search for the suspects continues and the Isuzu K250 bakkie registration number CVV887L is fitted with a tracking system and the search continues.
