Farm attack, woman (31) shot in chest, Rustenburg

A farm attack took place on Tuesday 22 December 2020, at 05:00, on a farm New Thorndale, Rustenburg, in the North West province of South Africa. A 31 year old woman is in a very serious condition in hospital after she was attacked by five black males all wearing balaclavas and shot in the chest.

The incident happened when she went out her front door. She and her mother stay in the same house but each have their own front entrance doors as the house is divided in two.

When the woman’s mother heard the shot, she looked out of the window, saw what happened and she then opened her front door and let her dogs out which caused the attackers to flee. She then called the ambulance and notified the police.

The woman was transported to Rustenburg provincial hospital and is in a stable condition.

No arrests have been made. There is no other information available at this stage.
