Robbers kill elderly Benoni man


A 75-year-old man was killed by robbers who also wounded his wife in their home in Benoni, on the East Rand early on Sunday, Gauteng police said.

Two men forced open the door and entered their house around 1am, police spokeswoman Tryna Wolmarans said.

They demanded cash and firearms from the woman, before pistol-whipping her. They went to a second bedroom, where the husband was sleeping, and assaulted him the same way. He died from his injuries.

“At this stage it is not clear if the robbers stole something from the house,” Wolmarans said.

The 71-year-old woman was admitted to hospital in a serious condition.

Murder and attempted murder dockets were opened. The robbers were still at large. - Sap
