According to provincial spokesman, Lt Col Thulani Zwane, the suspects made off with an undisclosed amount of money, cellphones, as well as property of some of the guests.

“The suspects pretended to be looking for more information regarding accommodation, they then held up the owner’s wife and held a gun to her mouth. Her husband was struck on the back of the head and assaulted by the suspects during the robbery. They also assaulted two maids and a guest,” Zwane said.

The incident followed the robbing of a Glenashley family who were held up by a six man gang at around 6pm on the same night.
