St Francis Bay police have arrested three men following a house robbery in the seaside town. The robbery took place in the late afternoon.
Police spokesperson, warrant officer Basil Seekoei, says the men allegedly entered the house through the back door while two elderly women were sitting in the lounge.
He says one of the suspects allegedly strangled one of the women before both were robbed of jewellery, cash and a cell phone.
Fortunately the women were not severely injured during the incident.
The suspects were arrested shortly afterwards. One of the suspects had jewellery in his possession when he was arrested.
