A violent farm attack took place on 11 November 2019, at 09:30, in Welbekend, Bronkhorstspruit, Gauteng province. A couple, Ben (73) and Ansie Dreyer (70) were attacked by seven armed attackers pretending to be clients wanting to buy milk. Ben along with a worker was forced into the home and into the bedroom where his hands and feet were tied and he forced to lay on the floor. The attackers who wanted firearms and money then forced Ansie to open the safe.
Ansie then pushed the panic alarm and was struck in the head by one of the attackers with his firearm. She collapsed on the bed pretending to be unconscious.
As a result of the alarm being activated, people started phoning the farm, this caused the attackers to flee. The neighbors and emergency services reacted and treated the elderly couple who were severely traumatized. The attackers robbed two firearms, jewelry and cash.
There is no other information available at this stage.
