ROBBERS BREAK INTO SUNLAWNS FLAT

Residents lost their belongings after four men allegedly broke into their flat.
The owners from Sunlawns flat in Davenport, arrived from work to find their door opened with two laptops, flat screen, money and valuable jewelry missing earlier this week.
Other flat members said that this incident was an inside job as the robbers used the small gate, which is barely used by anyone in the flat and is always locked.
“I know the owner of the flat and I’ve always seen her using the big gate as well as most of the tenants. It’s very strange to hear that the robbers used the small gate of which very few people own discs for,” said tenant Simthandile Sigalenana.
The maintenance person for this block of flats on Heather Road, Nicholas Mzobe said that he saw four unfamiliar faces coming down the flat.
“I was sweeping the yard and I saw a black VW polo parking outside the flat. Four well-dressed men came out of the car and went straight to the flat. At first I thought it was one of Michelle’s (the owner) friends, but I saw them coming down with flat screens and laptops.
I quickly ran away because I was scared they were carrying guns and I called the police,” said Mzobe.
Police have taken statements from the witnesses and are conducting further investigations.
