A family living in Southbury, Phoenix, is still reeling from shock after they were held up in their house and robbed last week.

It is alleged that three unknown African males entered the house and demanded cash and jewellery.  One of the suspects was standing outside, keeping guard. One suspect pulled out a firearm.  The suspects took a safe with jewellery valued at approximately  R200 000, two cell phones and cash of R400.

Communications Officer at the Phoenix SAPS, Captian Louise Naidoo said, “The victims were made to lie o then floor and suddenly heard gunshots outside the house and suspects ran out”.

The suspect standing outside the gate began shooting when he noticed a marked GBH security vehicle driven past with the  bar lights on.

The security officer stated that he was on his way to drop off a staff  member when he suddenly saw sparks in front of his vehicle.  He then realised that he was being shot at by a suspect.

“He reversed, fired towards the suspects and then noticed more suspects run out and the shooter came towards him with a rifle.  The security officer alighted his vehicle and continued firing towards the suspects’  getaway vehicle. The suspects fled down Southbury Drive towards Eastbury Drive”, she reported.

Fortunately, no one was injured. Three vehicles - including the security vehicle - were damaged. Three rifle cartridges were found at the scene and six 9 mm cartridges were found on road.

Police are investigating.
