The woman was found on her bed, tied up and covered with a blanket.

Maphakela said two men who broke into her home tied her up on Wednesday around 2pm.

“She was reading in her study room when the men broke in, tied her up, and stole some of her belongings.”

The woman was traumatised and could not remember what the intruders had taken, apart from her cellphone. She was not hurt.
