Port Elizabeth Woman Tied Up During House Robbery
During the early hours of Wednesday morning, two suspects entered a home in Bushy Park through the bathroom window wearing balaclavas. According to the victim, the suspects tied her up in the lounge area where they then proceeded to search for the keys to the safe. The victim managed to escape through the bedroom window
Apart from jewellery and cellphones stolen from the home, the suspects fled the scene without taking any other valuables. Atlas Security and all role players arrived on the scene after receiving a phone call. We’re pleased to report the victim didn’t sustain any injuries.
Atlas Security’s Operations Manager, Monty Montgomery advised residents to ensure external security measures are put in place on their properties for an early warning system. “We highly recommend residents to install external beams or CCTV surveillance cameras on their properties as these are strong deterrents to criminals because the risk of being caught is far greater. These security measures also importantly give you an early warning system and buy time to lock yourself in a safe room in the house if an intruder does venture onto the premises.”
