A couple in their 70s were assaulted during an alleged robbery on their small holding in Bloemspruit outside Bloemfontein last night. The husband and wife suffered critical and serious head injuries and had been bound.

When ER24 paramedics arrived at 21:15, both a security company and SAPS were on the scene. One of the suspects had been shot and killed and another apprehended. The deceased suspect showed no signs of life and was declared dead on arrival by our paramedics.

The husband and wife were found collapsed in the house. The husband was treated on scene using Advanced Life Support interventions before both were transported to Mediclinic Bloemfontein.

The South African Police Services are investigating further.
