Abramjee thanks cops for quick response
The Crime Line head and his wife were held up at their home in the early hours of the morning.
PRETORIA - Crime Line head Yusuf Abramjee on Friday thanked police for their swift response to a robbery at his home in Erasmia near Centurion.
Abramjee and his wife were held up by two robbers before he and his son exchanged gunfire with them.
It's understood the gunmen cut the electric fence to gain entry into the home.
Police are now searching for the men who fled the crime scene in Abramjee's vehicle.
The Crime Line head says he's grateful with the police's response and that nobody was hurt.
"We were taken by surprise," he says. "Once again, it brings home the fact that crime affects everyone. I think it was a random house robbery and I'm sure the police will do their utmost to bring them to book."
Abramjee says the incident has shaken him and his family.
Police are searching for the suspects, who could still be armed.
Both men appeared to be in their 20s.
