A brave South African father has fought three robbers gallantly to save his young family from attack.
Craig Viljoen woke at 03:00 on the morning of Thursday, 20 September, to the screams of his wife who was with their one-year-old baby in the master bedroom of their home. Craig was in his three-year-old son’s bedroom at the time.
As soon as the bedroom door was opened, he was menacingly confronted with a knife wielding assailant. Craig didn’t think twice. In a split second, before the knife could harm his body, he launched an attack first. Not only did he wrestle the knife from the first robber and a gun from the second of the three home invaders who fled the scene after his wife had raised alarm in the district.
