The homeowner had gone to work having locked and secured the house. She returned hours later after a strike at her work and found the accused next to her room with its door wide open.

Alongside the accused was a bag full of clothes and a washing basket filled with the victim’s toilet paper, appliances, plastic containers and more clothing.

The victim ran back to the gate, locked it and called her neighbours who restrained the perpetrator before the police arrived at the scene and arrested her.
