Incident #8075
Armed Robbery


## Strubens Road, Observatory, Cape Town, Western Cape
29 July 2015 at 04:00 - Reported by Jenny_Calder
My neighbours were held up at 4am in the morning by 3 adult men and a child (who climbed through the burglar bars and opened the front door).

They had a gun. They used a car jack to gain entry through both the fence and the burglar bars. They particularly wanted gold jewellery which my neighbours did not have.

They ransacked the house and took everything of interest and left them unharmed by severely traumatised. After numerous car break ins in our road I would say we are under quite a severe crime wave.
