Two elderly Witpoortjie residents have been left traumatised after being held and robbed at gunpoint this morning, Wednesday, 6 March.
The four robbers made off with two televisions from the house and also stole a silver Chevrolet Cruze with registration number BC 46 NG GP. They are still on the run.
If that was not enough, on their way out they allegedly robbed a neighbour of his phone while he was standing at his gate. The robbers sped off in a Ford Ranger and the stolen Chevrolet Cruze. Police were called to the scene.
A number of security companies were also on scene to get detailed descriptions of the suspects.
One of the robbers was allegedly clad in a City Power T-shirt, according to the homeowner.
It was speculated at the scene that the suspects could have been the infamous City Power staff impersonators.https://newsoweto.co.za/elderly-couple-robbed-at-gunpoint-by-fake-meter-readers-witpoortjie/https://newsoweto.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/IMG_3345_25277-768x576.jpghttps://newsoweto.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/IMG_3345_25277-768x576-150x150.jpgMetroWitpoortjie
