Violent crimes concern George residents


The George Community Policing Forum on Tuesday said many residents of the Garden Route town have approached them, following two separate violent crimes in April.

Last Friday, a doctor and his wife were attacked in their home by two armed men.

It is alleged the 57-year-old homeowner who was injured during the robbery, shot dead one of the intruders.

Earlier in April, a 64-year-old was stabbed to death on a farm outside George during an attempted robbery.

The CPF’s Jonathan Gelderbloem said there were various ways ordinary citizens could legally fight crime.

“Two wrongs do not make a right. Let’s see how we can get the rest of the community and police involved, in trying to curb these kinds of incidents.”
