After the black attacker’s gun failed twice, the Jacobs father and son waded in with a candelabra and a drinking glass, fighting off two men who tried to kill them inside their high-security Summerville townhouse…
Picture: black robbers tell Afrikaner businessman being targetted by a large black mob: let this be a lesson: whites aren’t welcome in the streets of Johannesburg any more…’
2009-09-05 KRUGERSDORP. Amanda Roesthoff of Beeld newspaper reports that David Jacobs, 38, an Afrikaner father and his eleven-year-old son Divan fought back fiercely with their bare hands against a group of armed black males who attacked the sleeping family inside their Blouberg Street, Summerville home.
One black man placed his gun against Mr David Jacobs chest and pulled the trigger twice – but it failed to fire. It’s just fate, said Jacobs, who is a project manager working for a Noordheuwel construction company.
“Then the old defence-force thing kicked in, you know. If you hear the shot, you know you are still alive. If you don’t, then there’s problems…’ the relieved dad told Beeld journalist Amanda Roesthoff after the family’s nighttime ordeal.
Police caught three armed black men several hours later in the veldt nearby after a helicopter hunt – and they are being questioned as suspects in a police cell, she writes.
Jacobs said he and his wife Nellie, 32, were asleep in their bedroom when their daughter Denise, 9, suddenly showed up and told them she ‘wasn’t feeling well’. Denise was put down on a couch in her parents’ en-suite living room on the upper level of their security townhouse while Jacobs went to the bathroom – and then realised that there was a problem: he kept hearing constant growling from their dobermann-pinschers, Choppy and Cherry, outside in the garden.
So the Afrikaner dad was on full alert as he walked back to his wife and Denise, noticed a ‘dark shape’ in the living room corner next to the stairs, grabbed a candelabra, shouted “Haai, wena!” and bashed the black man standing there in the face. This man slid back down the stairs while his armed comrade rushed upstairs and pointed his gun straight against Jacobs’chest ,pulling the trigger twice. They went click-click, the gun had failed to fire.
Meanwhile their son Divan, described as a sturdy grade-four pupil at the primary school Roodekrans in Roodeport, also stormed in. “Divan is not a little man and he threw his cool-drink glass which he always took with him to his bedroom each night, from the upperlevel straight at the second man at the bottom of the stairs, hitting his head,” said Jacobs. This man then hit Divan with the fist in the face and stomach to get away from the eleven-year-old.
Jacobs said when the armed man’s gun failed to go off, he also kicked the gunmen downstairs, and the man fell all the way to the ground floor, stood up and started fighting with the two Jacobs males – who rushed downstairs and started grappling with the two home-invaders, trying to get them out the front door. Alas, one punch thrown by Mr Jacobs instead it the front door’s window, he said. The house-attackers then fled through the broken bathroom window, grabbing Jacob’s wrist watch lying on a nearby table as they ran.
Neighbours came rushing over due to the racket while the security guard posted at the complex had also already called the MSR-security company and the police. Shortly thereafter, there was a sudden rush of security around the house, with a police helicopter hovering above to chase the gang down. http://www.beeld.com/Content/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/1928/54258fda750944aab299dab4d5775121/05-09-2009-12-49/Seun_en_pa_dons_rowers_op
Whites ‘no longer welcome in the streets of Johannesburg’
Afrikaner Pieter du Preez, robbed by huge black crowd in Johannesburg
Beeld reader Pieter du Preez writes 2009-09-03 that he and a black colleague were walking in the streets of Johannesburg recently. “We were both neatly dressed. Yet a group of about eight black people grabbed me and robbed me, while my black colleague, who was trying to help, was held at gunpoint and forced to stand and watch my ordeal amongs a crowd of hundreds of blacks who all stood and watched as I was being publicly humiliated, strip-searched for valuables and robbed. My black colleague was told by blacks amongst the crowd that this ‘robbery’ was just a lesson that white people aren’t welcome in the streets of Johannesburg any longer.
Perhaps we whites should create a website where racist attacks like this are published for the rest of the world to read. http://www.beeld.com/Content/MyBeeld/Briewe/1976/4413dd621d4d451dba0349a7448306b3/03-09-2009-02-21/Wittes_onwelkom
