Beverley Fourways house robbery: Here’s what we know

Beverley is one of four quaint suburbs nestled in the leafy and opulent Fourways, one of Gauteng’s most prized real estate neighbourhoods.

This quiet and secure community was rocked by brazen armed robbers who, according to renowned crime reporter Yusuf Abramjee, targeted an undisclosed property as a prime location to pull of a daylight robbery.

While very few details have surfaced on the story, at this time, it’s believed two or more suspects entered the property and held its occupants at gunpoint.

It is unclear, at this juncture, if any valuables were removed from the Beverley property. However, we can confirm that a four-month old infant was taken by the suspects who left the house without harming any victims.

Our attempts to get in touch with Fourways police, at the time this article was published, were unsuccessful. However, we were able to reliably learn that authorities quickly rushed to calls of distress from the property and a wide scale search was activated to track down the whereabouts of the baby.
