The suspects allegedly asked the man for his safe and pushed him into his bedroom, where his wife (age unknown) was sleeping at the time.

“When the suspects opened the safe they only found documents in the safe,” says Ramphora.

The suspects locked the man in the bathroom.

A TV set, tablet and two cellphones were taken from the house and loaded into the man’s blue Chev Spark.
