AN knife-wielding robber pounced on the elderly at Dandaro Old People's Home in Borrowdale, Harare, at the weekend and got away with more than $1 900 and £80 in cash.




Harare provincial spokesperson Tadius Chibanda yesterday confirmed the incident and identified the victims as John Kirwal (71) and Benedict Book Binder (75).

"At 2300 hours, Kirwal and Binder were in the house in their rooms and the robber opened an unlocked door and went to the bedroom of Kirwal who was sleeping at the time. The robber is said to have woken Kirwal up, pointed a knife at him and demanded cash," Chibanda said.

Chibanda said Kirwal gave the robber $1 100 and £30.

"The robber then took Kirwal to Binder's room where he was sleeping and woke him up and again demanded cash," he said.
Binder is said to have

surrendered $800 and £50 before the robber disappeared into the night.

"We urge people to lock their doors all the time to avoid such incidents in their homes," Chibanda said.
