She was alone at home when the incident happened around 4:30pm. “I live with someone but he was not home. We use a remote to get into the property. The two guys managed to get inside the property and knocked at the door. When I asked who was at the door and tried to check, they said they were looking for someone. They mentioned a name I don’t know,” she said. She added it happened so fast, then the next thing they had opened the burglar gate.

Princess McDonald says she co-operated. “They then opened the burglar door and told me to sit in the room and relax and they would not harm me,” she added. The robbers took her cell phone, TV and other valuable items. She does not suspect anyone would harm her. “I live in the main house and we have tenants living at the back.

The robbers did not go to the back, they ended up here in the house with me. I just feel like they knew what they wanted and came with intention. I do not feel safe at all,” she said. “It’s a horrible experience. You don’t know what will happen to you, whether they will harm you or not.” Princess opened a case at the Norkem Park Police Station.
