Woman wakes to find home intruders in bedroom

A terrified Sunward Park woman was roused from her sleep by two robbers standing over her bed.

According to a police report, the woman was asleep in her bedroom when she was awakened by a torch being shone into her face, Boksburg Advertiser reports.

She stirred to find two men in her bedroom just after 4am on Saturday, August 27, in Sunward Park, in Boksburg, Gauteng.

They demanded that she pull the duvet over her head, apparently so that they could avoid identification.

The thugs ransacked the house, stealing goods worth about R250 000. The stolen goods included cash, watches, whiskey, TV sets, DVD players, clothing and other valuables.
