Fans robbed during World Cup
Johannesburg - South African police say four Australian fans were robbed after their team's final World Cup match.
Police spokesperson Leonard Hlathi said on Sunday the four found their chalet had been ransacked after they returned to their hotel outside the eastern city of Nelspruit on Thursday night. As one of the fans headed to the front desk to report what had happened, four armed men pushed him back into the chalet. All the fans were then forced to the ground and searched.
Hlathi says an undisclosed amount of cash and items such as cameras were taken. He said no one was hurt.
Hlathi says police were appealing to the public for information leading to the arrest of "these thugs."
Australia beat Serbia 2-1 on Thursday in the last game before both teams went home.
