A 33-year-old man was murdered on Friday night when two armed robbers attacked him in a garage on a smallholding in Hennops River.
His fiancée Anel Venter managed to escape and rushed to the man's parents' house for help.
Police spokesperson Inspector Paul Ramaloko said Jacques Olivier and Venter were in the garage where Olivier was working when they were confronted by the robbers.
According to police, Venter managed to escape just as the suspects fired several shots into the garage.
Olivier's stepfather went to investigate and found the young man's body. Ramaloko said nothing was stolen from the house or garage by the attackers. - Hanti Otto
