The gate is still in the process of opening, when a silver vehicle is seen speeding down the road towards the house. The vehicle moves out of the range of the camera and the gate then begins to close.

Seconds later, a man wearing a navy baseball cap, light blue jeans, takkies and a navy jacket, with IPSS branding, is seen walking towards the gate while adjusting his mask.

He appears to stand behind the boundary wall, as he looks into the yard. He is also seen looking in the direction of where the car was believed to have been parked.
