This morning at 04:00, a resident was asleep at her home in Sunningdale, Durban when three unknown men entered her house after cutting the gate.
They attacked the victim and stole a TV set, jewellery, cellphones and other household items. They loaded all these items into the victim's vehicle. The victim activated the panic alarm and police officers from the Durban North police station responded together with security officials. The vehicle was spotted in Umhlanga and a chase
ensued. The suspects then fled towards KwaMashu.
The suspects lost control of the vehicle as it overturned near Duffs Road. Three suspected aged between 21 and 30 were apprehended at the scene. Two suspects sustained injuries and were taken to hospital where they are held under police guard. Various house breaking implements such as bolt cutters as well as stolen items were recovered by the police. The suspects are expected to appear in the Durban Magistrates Court soon.
