An elderly couple was overpowered in their home in Swakopmund’s Kramersdorf on Saturday, at around 01:15. Thugs broke into the house of Mr Timm Wagner (79) and his wife (68).

It’s alleged that the Wagner couple was woken up by two unknown men wearing balaclavas that night. The two men allegedly grabbed Mr. Wagner and his wife, pushed them into a bedroom and demanded money and fire-arms.
Wagner handed over N$500 and the suspects removed an additional N$800 from his trouser pocket. The suspects then ran-sacked the entire house and took 2 Samsung Galaxy cell phones, 2 gold watches and 2 necklaces. According to Detective Inspector Daniel Gurirab of Nampol, the suspects tied the victim’s hands with shoe laces before they fled the scene.
Mr Wagner managed to untie himself and then his wife and then reported the incident to the police. We are relieved that no harm was caused to the victims”, said Gurirab. The Police investigations in this incident continue.
