WORDS OF A VICTIM OF AN ARMED ROBBERY IN BRACKENFELL PROTEA HEIGHTS
I just switched the car off, when three men entered the garage. They were armed with Firearms
Then the one man asked if we had any children. I said no, we're alone.
Then the man asked if we had a safe, then he asked if we have Firearms
and then for cash. He repeatedly asked for the safe. When we said we had nothing, they went further through the house.
We asked for the Lord's hand of grace and asked God to protect us.
Then the strangest thing happened. The one who stood behind us said: "I'm sorry. Just keep on praying. Jesus will protect you."
It was as if he was misplaced. He said "just keep co-operating, keep calm and keep quiet, they will not hurt you".
I just refused to take my wedding.
Before the robber dropped me on the ground, he asked me if I was pregnant - I replied "I do not know." My husband said "We've been trying for a while".
I knew I was not pregnant, but we tried to win sympathy. The one robber said: "I do not want to hurt the baby." This was the strangest experience.
We are not aware of such things. What are we supposed to do? We have four dogs, an alarm system and an emergency button. You think you have a chance, but then something happens so fast and then you realize there's nothing you can do.
Our whole life revolves around the Lord. We just kept praying.
