Theft robbery

Bolobedu teenage girl was left traumatized after robbery at Tzaneen Mal

MOTUPA : A Bolobedu teenage girl was left traumatized after two men along with a lady robbed her at Tzaneen Mall on Saturday.

Nelbonia Modipa (17) from Motupa village in Greater Tzaneen was robbed of money, phone, ID, and Absa bank card.

"They put a gun on my waist and told me not to shout or make any noise," she said with teary eyes.

Modipa told Tzaneen Voice that one of the suspects was wearing a white Adidas t-shirt and brown trousers and speaking the XiTsonga language.

The victim says that she is emotionally drained as the incident is still fresh in her mind.

"Emotionally, I'm not okay. I'm losing sleep each night because the ordeal repeats itself on my mind each day", said Modipa

Modipa is appealing to anyone who sees her ID to contact her through Tzaneen voice.

Tzaneen Mall Centre refused to comment as the matter was never brought to their attention but assured this publication that a follow-up will be done with the victim.

This incident happened just a day after a man was arrested for stealing two laptops at the same mall parking lot.

Tzaneen Police Station Communication Officer Sgt Maurice Nkhwashu is appealing to anyone with any information regarding any incident in town to report to the police immediately.
