Norwood pensioners robbed in their home

Norwood police are investigating a case of house robbery after two pensioners were targetted.

Norwood police have launched a manhunt after two pensioners, a wife and husband were robbed while sitting in their home in Norwood.

The robbers took the pensioners’ house appliances and gadgets valued at about R50 000 on 7 August in Melrose Street in Melrose at about 10 am, said Norwood police spokesperson, Captain Elliot Tshivhase.

“About four suspects broke the lock of the gate before breaking a security gate of the main house and subsequently entered the house.

“They found the pensioners, Mr Peter Kirckhoff who is 86 years old his wife who is over 60, and threatened them.

“They demanded jewellery and money but the pensioners told them that they don’t have such things in the house.” Tshivhase said they made off with a plasma TV, an iPad, as well as a computer, all valued at about R50 000.

A case of house robbery has been opened and police are investigating the case.

No one has been arrested, however, police are following every lead and anyone with information is requested to come forward.
