Victim Thoroughly Beats Up and Robs Burglar

A BURGLAR was thoroughly beaten up and robbed of his BlackBerry Curve cellphone and $300 by the owner of a house he had attempted to rob in Bulawayo's high-density suburb of Tshabalala.

Instead of getting away with Mr Arnold Ngwenya's property, the unknown burglar ended up being the victim because his would-be prey, who caught him red-handed trying to steal his laptop computer and PlayStation 3, was much stronger and smarter than him.

The incident happened sometime last month.

According to 35-year-old Mr Ngwenya, who was on night shift on the day in question, the burglar must have known that there was no one at home and decided to use the opportunity to take what he did not work for by breaking into the house through the window.

But unbeknown to him, as he broke into the house, Mr Ngwenya was on his way home because the company he works for was hit by power shortages caused by load-shedding.

When Mr Ngwenya arrived home he knew something was wrong because the lights were on. He had switched them off when he left for work.

Without a thought for dear life, Mr Ngwenya, who later admitted that his bravery was caused by blind fury, rushed into his house and caught the burglar who was carrying a heavy backpack trying to escape through an open window.

Mr Ngwenya said he violently pulled the burglar who was halfway out back into the house.

"To tell you the truth I was scared because I didn't know whether he was alone or he had accomplices. I just went in there because it's my house. I didn't care what would happen. But when I saw that he was running away I realised that I could beat him so I lunged at him and beat him up," said Mr Ngwenya.

After beating the now helpless man, Mr Ngwenya decided to give the burglar a taste of his own medicine. He took away his cellphone and $300 which was in his pocket.

Mr Ngwenya said: "I took the cellphone and the money because I wanted him to know how it feels to be at the end of a robbery. I am sure he is used to stealing from people so I stole from him. I told him that the money was for repairing my window. That is the reason I didn't report him to the police. The justice I meted out was enough."

Mr Ngwenya revealed that he had since sold the BlackBerry for a song.

"I took the cellphone to spite him. It's not because I wanted to make money so I sold it for $50," he said.

In the end instead of being disposed of his property, Mr Ngwenya's brush with the burglar saw him netting $350.
