A 74-year-old woman was tied up and locked in her house for three days with no food or water after she was attacked by robbers in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape police said on Wednesday.

Janice Breredon was attacked by three men on Sunday when she opened the door to let her cats out, Inspector Alwin Labans said.

“They tied her feet and hands up with cables and put sellotape over her mouth. They ransacked the house and left.”

The woman lived alone and her two cats. Neighbours heard screams on Wednesday and called the police.

“On arrival she was still tied up and on the top floor of her double-storey house. Her feet and hands were swollen. She was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.”

Police did not know what was taken from the house because they had not taken a statement from the woman.

No arrests had been made. – Sapa
