Comment on this story


A security guard was shot and wounded and a woman was raped in a robbery in Bendor Park, Polokwane, early on Wednesday morning, Limpopo police said.

Lieutenant-Colonel Malesela Ledwaba said four armed men broke into the back room of a house where two women were sleeping.

They raped one of the women and assaulted the other. They fled with the women's handbags and cellphones.

“A few blocks away, they ran into a security guard and shot at him. He was wounded in the arm.”

The noise woke neighbours, who alerted the police. One of the women and the guard were receiving treatment at a local hospital. Police were still looking for the robbers. – Sapa
