Tommy Swift, 59, and his wife, Maureen, 52, were robbed, tied, repeatedly assaulted and robbed by three men in their home in Myburgh Park, Langebaan, on Saturday. The couple moved from Gauteng to the West Coast three years ago.
“My wife was traumatized and very hurt. They tied our puppy to her back and threatened to cut the dog’s throat if my wife didn’t give them our bank cards PIN. All her teeth in her mouth were loose as they kicked and punched her.
Tommy says that they were lying on their living room couches watching television. They usually wait for their son, Tommy Swift Jr., to come home when he finishes work at night.
“It’s just easier, because then I can open it immediately when he gets home.”
Tommy says their puppy, who lives in the house, was previously restless. He said she kept going to the windows and barking.
I just heard her give one long bark and when I saw them again they were on us
