A violent farm attack took place on 27 April 2020, at 19:00, on a farm near Greylingstad, a small farming town west of Standerton, in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa. A woman, who farms alone, Sandra Greyling, was overpowered and severely assaulted at her electric gate by four attackers who then dragged her into the home, tied her up and continued with the violent assault whilst demanding firearms.
The attackers were in the home for over an hour and fled the scene on foot after being unable to start Greyling’s vehicle. Three firearms were robbed during the attack.
It is presumed that the attackers fled in the direction of Villiers. Farmers in the area responded but due to rain were unable to follow the tracks of the attackers. Sandra Greyling has been admitted to hospital with a number of injuries.
There is no other information available at this stage and there have been no arrests.
