A farm attack took place on 4 March 2021, at 03:00, in Koperfontein, near Derby, in the North West province of South Africa. At least three attackers broke into the farmhouse and attacked a family. The family was severely assaulted by the attackers one of which used a steel pipe to beat them. The family was then tied up.
The attackers said that one person had to be killed. Fortunately a female victim managed to send a message to another family member, her daughter, who was on the top floor of the house. The attackers threatened to rape and shoot her when they realised she had sent a message.
But the message in fact caused the attackers to flee.
The daughter on the top floor contacted neighbours for assistance and the necessary roleplayers responded. A firearm and three phones were stolen in the attack.
The police are investigating but there have been no arrests. There is no other information available at this stage.
