60 Year Old Female Pensioner Stabs House Breaking Thief

It is quite remarkable how an elderly 60 year old woman was able to protect herself and her property from a house breaking thief.


Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) reported on their Facebook about this incident which they attended to. It is said that the 60 year old woman ended up having the upper hand on the matter as she stabbed the robber in the chest as he broke into her home in Verulam which is in Durban.

The lady called RUSA as she was in shock. She informed RUSA that she stabbed the suspect as he was trying to force his way into the woman’s home. RUSA officers met the elderly female when they arrived on the scene.

The woman stated that she had been watching tv as she heard that there was a person trying to force themselves in her back door. The woman was quick to go and check what was happening she then saw the male and quickly grabbed a knife and stabbed the suspect who did not want to back down.

The male then sped off and ran after being stabbed and was not seen by the RUSA officers when they arrived, he remains at large.
