Puhl-Snyman says the incident has resulted in concern among community members about safety.
In the farming area it's been very quiet in the first half of this year, but maybe it's not as quiet as it looks because there's low level crime that's not being reported.Dr Carol Puhl-Snyman, Stellenbosch CPF head
