Uninvited guests spoil birthday party

Police spokesperson Captain Balan Muthan says the police are searching for the suspects.

A house party came to an abrupt end in Boskruin on 6 December when two gatecrashers arrived uninvited.

The two alleged robbers entered the home through the back door that was not locked while the complainant was celebrating his birthday with friends.

One of the suspects is said to have had a firearm while the other had a pair of bolt cutters.

According to police spokesperson Captain Balan Muthan, the armed suspect allegedly pointed his gun at the victim and his friends and asked them to keep quiet.

“The gunman took the victim to the bedroom and wanted to know where the safe was. The victim told the gunman he doesn’t have a safe, and he asked for a laptop, and the victim showed him a laptop and he allegedly took it.”

It is reported that the armed suspect then ordered the victim to return to the dining room where everyone was lying on the floor, tied up with shoelaces.

The suspects also covered everyone with a duvet before taking a TV, laptop, six cellphones and jewellery.
On the same night, two suspects allegedly robbed two sisters while they were at home in Cosmo City.

It is claimed the two entered the room the sisters were in, and one of the suspects, who had a firearm, allegedly pointed it at them and demanded money.

The other suspect is said to have taken a cellphone and ran away.

One of the sisters screamed to alert the community and one suspect was caught.
