A house robbery turned violent in a Diaz Road home in Monday night when a Jeffreys Bay woman woke up to find an intruder in her home.
The brazen thug used a screwdriver to break open the security gate at the front door of the house and gained access through the front door.
“After discovering him inside, I sprayed him with pepper spray and chased him down the road. I went back inside to fetch my cellphone and he had come back again, this time intent on attacking me,” said the brave woman after the horrific attack.
During the attack, she was stabbed with the screwdriver on her arms as well as her chest.
The attacker was wearing dark pants, a grey coat with a houndstooth pattern with a red inner lining. He will have bright orange markings on him for the next 24 hours from the pepper spray.
There have been a number of housebreakings in the Diaz Road area over the past two months as well as in Wavecrest.
It is alarming that robbers are using violence when robbing residents in their homes.
