“Reports from the scene allege that three armed men entered the house and attacked the young couple, injuring the man. They also attempted to rape his fiancée, but they did not succeed,” said Magoro.

“The man was transported to hospital in a stable condition.”

Police and security personnel were on scene to investigate the events leading up to the attack.

This incident happened just a day after a mother and her daughter were attacked in Copperhouse Road, Nooitgedacht. The daughter was shot after being attacked by four armed men.
