Three armed robbers broke into Highlanders captain and goalkeeper Ariel Sibanda’s home in the wee hours of Friday and got away with a 72-inch television set.
Sibanda said the three men broke a padlock at the gate and gained entry into the house through a window after cutting the burglar bars.
The Warriors goalkeeper said he was woken up by his sister’s loud screams when the robbers had entered her bedroom. Said Sibanda:
There were three guys, and according to my sister, one of the intruders was standing by her bedroom door holding a torch and something that looked like a gun.
She screamed calling my name and when I woke up, I discovered that they had unscrewed the television set from the wall mounting in the lounge.
They then demanded money and when we told them that we didn’t have any, they just walked out.
I suspect that these people saw a truck delivering a lounge suite and a television stand on Thursday afternoon and assumed we had money.
… Everyone is shaken but we were not hurt. We thank God that they didn’t do anything to us.
