Valsayn family terrorised by bandits

St Joseph police are investigating a report of a home invasion in which a family of four was robbed at gunpoint.

The family included a 67-year-old man, his 65-year-old wife, and two 28-year-old men.

According to police reports, the victims were asleep at their home along Bamboo Settlement, Valsayn, when at about 3:00 am on Sunday, they were awoken by loud noises.

Four men were seen entering the premises, one of which was armed with a firearm.

The men announced a hold-up and threatened to kill everyone if an alarm was raised.

They then proceeded to rob the relatives of a quantity of cash, jewellery, business cards and cheques, and other items of value.

The assailants then made good their escape on foot.

When the gunmen left, the relatives notified police.

WPC Williams is continuing inquiries.

More on this as it becomes available.
