De Villiers said a police official who was also camping there called the police, but they never showed up.
“Both the Brits police and the Hartbeespoort police refused to let me report the incident.
“At the Brits police station, a police official told me they don’t have any stationery, and that I can’t report the incident on behalf of Jackie - who was sedated at the time - anyway.
“I went to the Brits police station with a journalist from the local newspaper, the Brits Pos, on Monday. It was only then that they finally helped me.
“The police took Jackie’s statement that same afternoon,” De Villiers said.
Brigadier Mokhele Seboloki, station commander, earlier told Beeld they are investigating charges of armed robbery and attempted murder.
The attackers fled with three cellphones and De Villiers’ car keys.
