EDITOR – My Partner and I arrived from Port Alfred on August 30 to attend a 21st birthday party in Centurion.
While up here we stayed at my family house in Sixteenth Avenue and only left for the party on the afternoon of September 1.
My sister, Dominique Hutcheon, who was also invited, was going to meet us later as she was still working.
When she and her friend arrived at the house to get ready they noticed two men trying to break into the house.
They disturbed them and contacted us immediately.

My sister told us the two guys were circling and hanging around the house.
The women were really worried to go inside the garden and house in case the men came back and confronted them.
Because we were so far from Edenvale we became worried.
On our way from Centurion, my mom contacted Mamba Security and asked Frans Strydom to please help us by staying with the girls until we get there.
She explained that my dad is not a client of theirs but the girls really feel threatened and scared to be alone.
Vanessa Jacobs from Mamba and Afriforum was off duty at the time but saw the WhatsApp message on their group.
She immediately got into her car and sat outside with the girls waiting for us to come home.

Vanessa not only sat there waiting with them but when we got there, she came inside with us to make sure the thieves weren’t in the house and all was safe for us.
Thank you Mamba Security and in particular Vanessa for going out of your way to help us even though my dad is not a client of Mamba Security.
