Ritavi Police have launched a manhunt for two unknown suspects who committed a house robbery at a farm along the Letsitele Valley main road in Mopani District on Sunday, 29 October 2023 at about 03:00.
An employee at the farm was asleep in his compound when two unknown males forced their way into his room. One of the suspects was holding a knife, while the other suspect held a steel pipe, thus threatening to stab the victim. They then fought physically. The second suspect who was holding a steel pipe hit the victim on his upper body, and he lost consciousness and collapsed. The victim sustained injuries to the body as a result of the assault and went to Letaba Hospital for medical treatment.
The suspects searched the room and took his valuables, such as safety boots, a hot plate, a work suit, a DVD music player, groceries, school bags with clothes, and an undisclosed amount of cash, and fled the scene.
The incident was reported to the police, and a house robbery case was opened.
