At approximately 02:58am members of Reaction Unit South Africa were dispatched to Oakford in Verulam after receiving reports of a farm attack, rape and attempted robbery.
Upon arrival Reaction Officers found the home smeared with blood. Officers were informed that an African male armed with a spear broke down the door to an elderly couples home. The suspect then began assaulting and stabbing the male victim with the spear demanding valuables before dragging the 70 year old Indian woman into a nearby bush where he raped her. The suspect is known to the female.
The victim managed to escape and fled to a neighbors home for help. The neighbors then contacted the RUSA Operations Center for assistance. The suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction.
The couple were rushed to a local hospital were they are currently receiving medical attention.
The farmers are soliciting for a final stop on this incessant killing of farmers.
