Safety tips for open show houses

There are many wacky things one can do with one's old iphone and fishing is one of them.

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.
