No arrests following attack on elderly Bfn man


The police in the Free State are still on the lookout for two intruders who attacked and shot a 73-year-old Bloemfontein man at his house over the past weekend.

Police spokesperson, Wendy Nkabi, says the elderly man was shot in the left shoulder when he refused to give his safe key to two men who entered his house in Flockeman Street, Hillsboro, and demanded that he provide them with the keys.

She says a case of attempted murder has been opened and investigations continue. The man is still receiving medical treatment at a local Bloemfontein hospital.
