Nelspruit – Three men accused of house robbery were arrested in Nelspruit on Wednesday, Mpumalanga police said.

They were caught in Dwaleni, Gutshwa and Pienaar where they had been hiding, said Brigadier Selvy Mohlala.

Apparently the three men, aged between 25 and 35, robbed a 72-year-old woman of four firearms, a DVD player and an undisclosed amount of money.

They first dragged her inside her house at her plot in Burnside, demanding safe keys, said Mohlala.

“They severely assaulted the old woman and burnt her with a hot iron until she gave them the safe keys.”…
