A GROUP of Australian soccer fans in South Africa, including an off-duty federal police officer, were bound, robbed and assaulted at gunpoint at their rural country lodge in Hazyview after watching the Socceroos play Serbia.
Four Australians and a London couple were returning to their lodge after watching the game about midnight on Thursday, when four armed men ambushed them.
They were attacked as the manager was showing them to their rooms at the plush Hamilton Parks Country Lodge in Hazyview, a remote area north-east of Johannesburg.
