The deficiencies and limitations regarding the presentation of individual-oriented factors in current textbooks in Criminology were previously reviewed by the author (see Van der Hoven 2001:81-89). In order to broaden the perspective of individual-oriented factors contributing to criminal behaviour an integrated model was designed to explain the criminal event. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate the application of the integrated model to explain the criminal event in a specific case study. Individual-oriented factors, milieu-oriented factors, as well as the victim, the crime and aftermath of the crime is incorporated in the proposed theoretical model. As point of departure, the author used the theoretical framework developed by Leslie Kennedy and Vincent Sacco (1996) and the term "criminal event" as conceptualised by these factors.
