An 88-year-old woman was robbed of her jewellery at her Walkerville home, south of Johannesburg on Thursday, Vereeniging police said.

The woman opened her door at 8.30am and found two men, in their 30s, claiming to be looking for a job, spokesperson Captain Shado Mashobane said.

"When she told them she already had a gardener, they then asked for water and followed her to the kitchen where they grabbed and carried her to the bedroom."

They throttled her, took her necklace and four rings, including her wedding ring, and ran away. The woman sustained bruises to her face and hands. No arrests had been made. - Sapa
