Rohan Janse van Rensburg and two of his family members were held at gunpoint in an armed robbery at their home on Thursday night.
The Lions and Bok centre, his younger brother Runan Venter and another unnamed family member were inside the house when three armed men entered the property. The suspects tied Venter and the woman together before forcing Janse Van Rensburg to drive them away with all the stolen goods to a township.
Janse van Rensburg only returned home hours after being forced to chaperone the suspects.
Venter posted an emotional message on Instagram on Friday in which he confirmed the incident and said that they were thankful to be safe.
