In a comical case involving four attempted robbers this weekend, men armed with 2 pistols and their identity protected by balaclavas ran away empty handed after failing to rob a house in Windhoek.

The police reported that the suspects entered a house on Sean MacBride street in Ausblick by cutting the electrical fence.

They were however spotted by one of the occupants in the house who alerted the six other people of the break in.

The occupants then intended to confront the suspects but retreated into the house when they saw the guns on the suspects.

One of the suspects then fired one round and the projectile hit the wall causing everyone to flee including the suspects.

The suspects ran off empty handed.

The police said that no arrests were made, however police investigations continue.
