A 50-year-old woman was arrested for attempted murder in Mountain View on Saturday.

Hercules police spokesperson captain Bonginkosi Msimango said the woman confronted construction workers with an airgun for making a noise.

“Construction workers said they were busy working and the woman went back to her house and came back with a pistol and shot one bullet at one of them,” Msimango explained.

Luckily no one was injured during the confrontation.

The woman was arrested, while the pistol and air-gun which belong to her husband were seized.

The woman will appear in the Pretoria North Magistrate’s Court soon.
