Johannesburg - Two men accused of breaking into Crime Line head Yusuf Abramjee's house appeared in the Atteridgeville Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, Gauteng police said.

The matter was postponed to December 13 and they would remain in custody, Captain Thomas Mufumadi said.

They were arrested after a spate of house robberies, burglaries, and hijackings around Pretoria last month. Police recovered three stolen cars, two unlicensed firearms, ammunition, and money at the men's home.

On November 22 they allegedly broke into Abramjee's house in Pretoria and demanded the keys to his BMW. They fired shots at the house while reversing out of the garage.

Police said at the time the robbers had targeted another house in a nearby street earlier that day.
