A family is abducted from their home in Northcliff.

A grim scene has been discovered at the residential premises of an apparent house robbery in Northcliff. A witness on the scene reports having seen blood inside the home, while police have confirmed that there were signs of a struggle in the home.

According to a reliable source, an armed robbery was reported at the home last night (4 June) at about 8.30pm.

Police’s provincial spokesperson, Captain Kay Makhubela confirmed that three people had allegedly been kidnapped from their home in Northcliff.

 

 

Police say the scene of the crime points to a kidnapping.

He explained the report indicated a man, woman and young woman were taken from the scene.

Police detectives and forensic teams are at the scene of the home in Northcliff. Makhubela said they are making sure that every piece of evidence is collected.

“The family car (a Mercedes-Benz) is still missing but we have no further details pertaining to the vehicle in question.”

Exact details about what happened at the home are unclear at the moment, however a journalist on the scene reports that the community have come together to support other family members, who have been unable to enter the home, due to the police investigation.

It is unconfirmed at this stage if this case is related to the discovery of three bodies that were found outside a Centurion estate at 2am this morning. Makhubela said the bodies discovered were burnt beyond recognition.

According to the police, the incidents are not yet linked. However a missing person’s report on Facebook of a Rakiel Naidoo (23) is assumed to be the daughter who was apparently kidnapped.
