Warrant Officer Moses Maphakela, spokesperson for Sandton Police Station said, “Three armed men wearing balaclavas and gloves targeted people at a open house [in Hyde Park] and robbed them of their possessions.”

Maphakela explained that the suspects then fled the scene in a blue Jetta with fake registration plates.

Warrant Officer Balan Muthan, head of communications for the Douglasdale Police Station, provided the following security tips for residents attending open houses:

  •  Get a reputable real estate company to host the open house
  •  Make sure you engage with your local security company and ensure that a guard is present at all times
  •  Don’t carry large amounts of cash as you are only viewing the house, not buying it.
