There has been a surge of house breakings in Jeffreys Bay this week, with reports of houses being broken into in the normally crime free suburb of Aston Bay.
Despite a quick response from a security company, the Police as well as the Neighbourhood Watch the suspects managed to escape into the bushes surrounding Aston Bay after breaking into two homes.
A young man was felt traumatised after being held up by a knife wielding intruder in Diaz Road yesterday morning.
“At 09:30 my son was woken up and held up in his bedroom by a black/ coloured man, bald (shaven) head wearing a blue/ grey tracksuit top, reported Cassandra Camons.
The man had a screwdriver or knife which he used to threaten my son. He spoke Afrikaans and demanded valuables.
He took money and 2 watches. He wiped his prints off everything he touched.
He locked my son in his room before taking off. He used a rake to first get my dogs into my bedroom, closed them in, before entering my son’s room.”
