Hi Tech Medical Service was dispatched to an armed robbery at the Duffeys farm at 22h10. Apparently 3 armed robbers entered the family home and demanded money and the key to the safe by gun point. The Father, Mother and Son were then tied up in one room and they continued to ask for the safe key and money. They then started to assault the family by using an iron to burn the mother and father. They then separated the family and took each family member to a different room. There they continued to physically assault the son, this all happened while they were tied up with cable ties. This started at about 19h00 the evening. The robbers then left with an undisclosed amount of money, phones and the fathers 4x4. We treated the mother for second degree burns to the arm, we had to take the son to the hospital for further treatment. The son was assaulted with a weapon to his head several times, as a result he sustained deep lacerations to his head. Although the physical wounds will heal easy in time we hope and pray that the emotional stress and pain will heal just as quick. Our prayers and wishes go out to the family and we are grateful that it did not end in the loss of life
