A 32 year old woman was kidnapped from Mannenberg on the evening of Sunday 27 July. She is said to be undergoing trauma counselling. It is alleged that the woman was kidnapped and taken to a house in Lower Cross Roads where she was held hostage and raped repeatedly by the two men who abducted her.
“It is alleged that she was kidnapped from the Mannenberg area. Police are investigating allegations of rape, as it has been alleged that the victim was repeatedly sexually violated by the owner of the address, where she was kept,” said Police Spokesperson Inspector Nondumiso Paul.
Paul said one of the suspects has been arrested and is due to appear in at the Athlone Magistrates court tomorrow. He will be charged with kidnapping, rape and attempted murder. His accomplice, however, is still at large.
