Six armed men stormed into the luxury boutique hotel Hout Bay Manor in the early hours of Monday and made off with 11 plasma television sets and a computer.

The robbers had a rifle and five handguns, police spokeswoman Captain Tanya Lesch told Eyewitness News.

Eyewitness News reported that the men also took an undisclosed sum of money after tying up a security guard and demanding keys to the safe.

Contacted for more details this morning, Lesch referred the Cape Argus to the police’s provincial communications headquarters. Spokespeople there were unable to comment at the time of going to print.

Attempts to contact the hotel’s management failed. Calls were diverted to voicemail.

There were no injuries during the robbery, according to Eyewitness News. – Cape Argus
