Krejcir family bound as robbers ransack house

Johannesburg – Five armed men ransacked the house of Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir while his family, bound by shoelaces and electric cord, watched helplessly, according to reports.

The Bedfordview and Edenvale News reported that Krejcir’s wife, his two sons and a girlfriend were awoken by armed men who had broken into his Bedfordview home on early Wednesday morning.

Eyewitness News tweeted that police had confirmed the break-in at Krejcir’s house.

Police spokesperson Noxolo Kweza told the Bedfordview and Edenvale News that the robbers stole two firearms, cellphones, cash and computers after tying the family up.

Kweza said some of the suspects made off with the Krejcir’s eldest son’s girlfriend’s car, while others escaped over the back wall of the house.

"They put the eldest son in the bathroom and put a towel over his head and forced the others to lie down in one room," Kweza told Sapa.

No shots were fired and no one was injured. No arrests had been made.

Krejcir remained behind bars as he faces a string of charges, including kidnapping and attempted murder. He was arrested in November last year.

Horrible ordeal. Didn't the same happen to Glen Agliotti while he was under investigation?
