LEPHALALE — Joseph Moatshe (43) was arrested on 23 June for the rape of a 40 year old woman. W.O. Frans Mokoena says it is alleged that Moatshe offered the victim a lift after which he raped her six times in the Uitspan Road area. He is charged with a case of sexual assault and rape (six times).
He appeared in Lephalale Magistrate’s Court and the case was postponed until 12 July. He did not receive bail and is still in the police holding cells.
W.O. Mokoena warns the community that the area opposite Home Affairs in OR Tambo Road is a very dangerous area. People look for lifts from this area and the criminals are aware of it. They pretend to offer people lifts and when they get into the car they are robbed or raped or both. “Do not accept a lift if you do not know the person” he advised.
