The police have recorded three robbery cases which occurred this past weekend in Otjomuise and Klein Windhoek.

It is alleged that unknown men gained entrance into a house by forcing open the door with a tyre lever at the corner of Istanbul and Frankfurt street in Otjomuise before fleeing with a television and a cell phone.

It is the police’s case that the two suspects, who were still at large by the time of publication, upon entry found two boys sleeping in the sitting room and when they asked them what they were doing the suspects hit the boys with a tyre lever.

They then gun pointed them and took the TV and a cell phone before proceeding to the sleeping room where they found the mother before forcing her to lie still and took her phone.

The suspects left the house locking the complainant and her children inside who managed to get out and found the suspects loading the TV inside a taxi.

No arrests have been made yet or has there been recovery of stolen items, police confirmed.

The condition of the beaten boys is stable and no injuries were sustained and police investigations continue, chief inspector Kauna Shikwambi said.

Meanwhile, in Otjomuise robbers forced their way into a house and held the occupant at gunpoint, took his firearm (pistol) and one flat screen television, 2 cell phones and clothes.

All items stolen are valued about N$63 000-00. No arrest or recovery has been made yet.

Police investigations continue.

In another same case in Klein Windhoek, two partners; a South African man and a Namibian woman were attacked by unknown suspects while sitting in their car.

The male partner was attacked with a crowbar at the back of his head and sustained serious injuries.

He was taken to Katutura hospital for medical attention.
