Bela-Bela – A farm worker and his accomplices were arrested after they tried to kill the man’s former employer, police said on Tuesday.

Spokesperson Gabashane Moseki said Casper Jermia Oukamp of Lekker Breek farm had been at home on Monday evening when he heard his dogs barking outside.

On investigation, he was confronted by three men, one of them armed with an AK-47.

The man shot at the farmer, but the firing mechanism jammed.

The 50-year-old Oukamp was able to overpower the man and kept him at the farm until police arrived.

The two other men were arrested shortly afterwards when police searched the area.
