South African model Lee-Ann Liebenberg and her family were allegedly robbed by three armed men in the driveway of her Sandton home on Tuesday afternoon.

The model tweeted that she and her family were followed home from a shopping centre in Hyde Park, and held up in their driveway by three armed men who were driving a Mercedes Benz with the registration BM 49PW, Sandton Chronicle reported.

Although the family was left traumatised, no one was hurt during the incident.

Liebenberg later tweeted that she was enjoying a family lunch with her daughter, who was celebrating her first birthday, and that they were “shaken and stirred, but grateful”.

“Family lunch celebrating my baby’s birthday could’ve ended so badly today. All glory to GOD. We’re all ok. Shaken and stirred but GRATEFUL,” she tweeted.

Gauteng police spokesperson Lieutenant Lungelo Dlamini said it was still unclear whether the incident had been reported to police.

“At this stage we are not sure where the case was reported,” he said.

Last month, Bafana Bafana coach Ephraim “Shakes” Mashaba, was reportedly robbed of several items, including a laptop and two cell phones.

During an interview, Mashaba said he made a stop at a fast food outlet in Auckland Park “for a few minutes” but when he returned he found his car had been broken into.

“A number of personal items were stolen, among them my two cellphones and a laptop,” he said.
