Denise Ryan deniseryan@mweb.co.za writes me: This happened to Mr and Mrs HW Rhaese, 69 Culross Road, Bryanston, Sandton, my parent’s friends, on Feb 12 2011.  Nothing was made of this crime nor the previous one that happened to this same elderly couple in October 2010 when Mrs Rhaese and her husband experienced a house robbery and ended up in Intensive Care at the Morningside Clinic.

Mrs Rhaese, 72, of Culross Rd, Bryanston was attacked last Saturday evening while she was preparing dinner in the kitchen and her husband was in the bedroom having a nap. Four armed black men gained access to the house through the sliding doors leading to the dining room. Mrs Rhaese locked herself in the kitchen when she saw them entering, but one of the men jumped through the kitchen servi g hatch leading from the dining-room to the kitchen.

“One robber stood on her head, two stood on her hands…’

“He hit her on the side of her face with the barrel of his gun. She dropped to the ground. As she lay there one of the robbers stood on her head and two others both stood on each of her hands, all the time shouting ‘where is the man, where is the money’. Her husband heard her screams and as he entered the passage from the bedroom he saw the robbers running towards him. Mr Rhaese fired a shot at them. The cowards turned and ran away just as the security company arrived at the gate. http://southafrica-pig.blogspot.com/2011/02/victim-of-violent-crime-at-hands-of.html

2011-02-08 20:45:00 To Eblockwatch.com: Mrs Moira Marcellino pic left, who is an official at a local bank, writes: “I am reporting the hijacking of my husband Jack (picture) and his friend Terry at our gate last evening. They were returning from a supper at Adega Paulshof restaurant. My husband did not have a remote control to open our gate, so on approach he called me as I was at home and expecting him. The phone then cut off, and before opening the gate I called him back as I could see the lights but I could also hear voices, no reply. Next thing there was slamming of car doors the lights disappeared and I guess what must have happened. I then called Terry’s cell which he answered as it must have been on silent and I listened to an hour of the conversation. Terry’s car was a Silver Mercedes Kompressor, there were four or 5 black men, two were armed and they were in a white BMW. It would appear that (my husband and Terry) were followed (from the restaurant) but did not notice and they came home via the College/Cambridge (security) boom…” (to enter the secure area of their street). “The kidnappers took Jack and Terry into the BMW and then left with the Merc. They disarmed the Matrix but it was last known that it was headed for Soweto. They drove Terry and Jack around, asking them which bank they banked with etc, pin numbers for cards, took their cell phones and jewellery. then, as Terry is Chinese they were asking him “where the diamonds and US Dollars were.” As I was listening to what they were saying I was able to block their bank accounts and bank-cards etc. The kidnappers then dropped them off somewhere in Vorna Valley unharmed and the Midrand Police collected them. Jack is now asking if there is camera footage from the camera at the boom. The police reacted very fast, as did the ADT response car. Please alert everyone as most especially those who drive cars that may be on any order list. Do you have an email for the Sandton Police Station?
