It turned into a dismal Christmas for the Grobbelaar family who was victims of a vicious farm attack on December 25. Around 04H15 three suspects entered the Frisgewaagd farm situated in the Dr. Kenneth Kaunda District, Maquassi Hills Municipality, Leeudoringstadt, North West Province.
It appears as though the three suspects attacked Thys Grobbelaar while he was busy at the milking cubicles. The suspects hit him with a cane and he sustained head injuries. The suspects entered the house and assaulted the farmer’s wife, Rita. Their daughter, Karin was shot in the chest and arm. Karin’s son was not only assaulted but shot through the mouth.
The suspects fled the scene and only a gun is reported as missing.
Both Karin and her son Joe were transferred to hospital and remain in a serious but stable condition.
The police are searching for the suspects and investigating an attempted murder case.
