Margate - A woman shot and killed a robber in her home in Margate, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Wednesday.

Captain Thulani Zwane said two men armed with knives attacked a 39-year-old woman while her husband was away on Tuesday morning.

"After she was seriously assaulted, the men began stealing some of her items," he said.

The woman managed to get hold of a firearm belonging to her husband and shot one of the robbers. 

The other robber fled from the scene.

She alerted police and was later taken to hospital.

A 25-year-old man was declared dead at the scene.

His accomplice, a 27-year-old man, was later arrested in Uvongo. A knife and some of the stolen items were recovered in his possession.

He was expected to appear in the Ramsgate Magistrate's Court on Thursday.
