Shortly after 07:00 on Tuesday, Marshall Security Armed Reaction officers responded to an attempted house robbery in Haleric Road, Durban North.

Reports from the scene indicate that five men, two armed with pistols jumped over a boundary wall and began attempting to smash through a front door to the home when they were confronted by the homeowner.

The man attempted to fight off the suspects and a tussle ensued with the homeowner punching one of the suspects in the face before the armed men allegedly tried shooting the homeowner however remarkably their weapons jammed preventing the shots from being discharged.

The men scaled the wall, fleeing in an awaiting getaway vehicle empty-handed.

The homeowner was assessed on site by Crisis Medical paramedics and declined further hospital treatment.

The scene was secured and handed over to the South African Police Services for further investigation and processing.
