A domestic worker was attacked by an intruder on Thursday while getting a house in St Francis Bay ready for the holidays .
While details are unclear it seems she managed to fend off the intruder and call for help. She was hospitalised but luckily is not in serious condition.
Domestic workers and cleaning staff are extremely vulnerable when working alone.
For their own safety they should ensure that exterior doors and unsecured windows are kept closed and locked at all times while they are working.
