    Resident faces murder charges after house break-in

    By Odette Ismail

    A Cape Town resident will face a murder charge after shooting a robber in his home yesterday, in apparent self defence.

    Police spokesperson Elliot Sinyangana says that the incident took place at 3am yesterday morning at the owner’s house in Buxton Avenue, Oranjezicht.

    The owner heard noises and was woken up. It is believed that the burglar gained entry through an upstairs bathroom window.

    The 55-year-old man told the Cape Argus that he heard scratching at the side of his house and shortly afterwards saw the suspect through his bedroom keyhole, walking up the stairs.

    The resident apparently took his firearm from his dresser confronted the man and told him to go downstairs. He then made the intruder sit down.

    While contacting the police the unarmed suspect allegedly attacked the man and this is when the owner shot the suspect in the chest.

    Yes, that's why the man deserves an award, there are too many scumbags down there, he got rid of one more
