Police spokesman Captain Gerald Mfeka said the intruders demanded cash, jewellery and firearms before ransacking the house and stabbing the man twice in the upper thigh.

“One of the men raped the woman while the other bound her bleeding husband’s feet with sticky tape as he lay next to his wife on the bed.”

Cpt Mfeka added the men fled with undisclosed amount of cash and various other items.

No arrests have been made.
