Cops investigate home invasions

Table View police are investigating two home invasions that happened within hours of each other.

On Wednesday, March 22, at 10pm, five men, posing as security officials, confronted a couple at their Coral Road home in Bloubergstrand, said Table View police spokeswoman, Captain Adriana Chandler.

The man jumped out the window, but the suspects chased him and made him drive his BMW to Gugulethu, where he was released and the victim walked to the Gugulethu police station to report the incident.

In the second incident, intruders broke into a couple’s home at the Eastwood Complex in Sunningdale on Thursday March 23, at 2am.

The husband heard his wife scream and a shot being fired. The suspects then entered the bedroom and covered the wife’s head with a pillow case. Both husband and wife were tied with cable ties while the men ransacked the house, taking house-hold appliances and other valuables before fleeing. No arrests have been made.

Police are investigating a case of robbery and kidnapping.
