Cape Town - A Parow businessman says he and a friend were robbed by men posing as cops and SARS officials.

He said last Friday, 13 heavily armed men dressed in full police gear and South African Revenue Services uniforms rocked up at his friend’s posh Plattekloof house and robbed them of cash, jewellery and cellphones.

He said the robbers tortured his friend by pouring boiling water over him and also threatened to shoot and kidnap his three-year-old daughter.

Camera footage and pictures seen by the Daily Voice show a white two-door bakkie with SARS branding pulling up at the house.

At the gate, the men in the bakkie speak to the homeowner for a few minutes and about an hour later they returned with a police-branded Mercedes-Benz Vito and a blue BMW 3 Series sedan.

“They came at 5.30am and my friend told them he cannot open for them, they must come with the police,” says the businessman who asked not to be named.

“They were gone for about an hour and a police car pulled up with the SARS car and another car.”
