A domestic worker fell prey to spurious electricians who turned out to be criminals. They held her at gunpoint and escaped with the car and valuables of a homeowner in Little Falls on 8 February.

According to Honeydew Police spokesperson Captain Balan Muthan, at about 11am, the two men told the helper that they wanted to fix the home’s electricity but, “Suddenly they pointed a firearm at her and ordered ‘to behave’.

They took items such as a television, fax machine and other which they loaded into a silver Audi that belonged to the owner of the house.”

Muthan said the vehicle is fitted with a tracker but that there has been no confirmation as to its recovery or whether anyone has been arrested.
