Durban: South African fast bowler Makhaya Ntini has become the latest victim of the country’s rising crime incidents as police claim to have arrested two youngsters for breaking into Ntini’s house in the city of East London.

The youngsters, hauled up to court by police, are alleged to have stolen cell phones and clothing. They fled with their loot to an informal settlement in the city, earlier this month.

The youngsters, both 17-year-olds, broke into Ntini’s luxury home through a window while no one was at home. Ntini is currently on Pakistan tour with his team. The youths have been released into the custody of their parents and have been asked to appear in court again on November 27. — PTI
