Wesselsbron - Community members in Wesselsbron this week apprehended a teenager who allegedly robbed a woman at knife-point after demanding she also download movies on to a flash drive for him, Free State police said.

A 28-year-old woman was at her home in the town at about noon on Wednesday when a teenager armed with a knife entered and "demanded that movies should be downloaded into a memory stick", Captain Stephen Thakeng said.

He also demanded cash and was given R300. He allegedly also robbed the victim of three cell phones, two laptops, and a yellow bag containing clothing, before tying her hands and feet with a belt and electrical wire.
