A task team has established to investigate the latest attack on a couple in the Eden Glen retirement village in Jeffreys Bay.

The Jeffreys Bay Police are looking for three suspects who gained entrance into Eden Glen at about 00:00 on Friday, 31 March 2017.

Police were notified and detectives are following up on all possible leads.
