Members of the South African Police Service in Komatipoort are looking for three men who killed a man and injured his lady friend during an attack on a farm today at around 08:30.
It is alleged that the trio who were wearing balaclavas, gained entry onto the farm by firstly attacking and restraining a security guard whose hands and feet were tied up, before they proceed to the house.
They ordered the man who was outside, to go into the house where they tied his hands and feet whilst they also did the same to the woman they found in the house.
Suddenly shots were fired and both victims were hit, the man once on the body and the woman several times, also on the body.
The man was later certified dead at the scene by paramedics whilst the woman was rushed to hospital.
It is further reported that the woman’s son was awakened by the sound of gunfire and went to investigate, in the process disturbing the attackers. They then fled the scene, taking the deceased’s cell phone with them.
Police are investigating cases of murder and attempted murder. No arrest has been made so far and police are making an appeal to anyone who may assist in tracing and investigating this matter to contact Captain Luiwe Stander on 082 449 0242 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
