Pretoria couple hospitalised after housebreaking

The attackers assaulted the couple and attempted to rape the woman in front of her husband.

Police have launched a manhunt for two men armed with screwdriver after they assaulted a couple in their Garsfontein home in Pretoria, reports Pretoria East Rekord.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Jan Sepato said the armed men gained entry into the house last Friday at about 6pm while the woman was opening the door for her cats to come into the house.

“The two forced their way inside the house and demanded money. They assaulted the couple and also attempted to rape the woman in front her husband but she fought back.”

The suspects fled with two cellphones.

The couple, both in their 50s, have been admitted to hospital.
