Another reported rape

LEPHALALE — A Rape case that was reported in Polokwane per CAS 01/08/2016, was transferred to Lephalale FCS (Family violence, Child protection and Sexual offences unit) on Tuesday.
It is alleged that a 35 year old man was arrested in Polokwane for raping a 17 year old girl in Ga-Seleka. This happened after the suspect visited Polokwane with his luxury car. He stopped at the victim and told her that he is the Mayor’s driver and that he is not familiar with the area. This lead to the suspect abducting the victim and taking her to Ga-Seleka.
According to the victim, the suspect raped her in the bushes nearby Ga-Seleka and again at his homestead after she was threatened to be killed should she try anything that could lead to his arrest.
On a previous occasion the suspect appeared in Lephalale Magistrate’s Court on a similar case (CAS16/09/2015) where he allegedly raped two young girls from Shongoane, aged 14 and 15 years, after giving them a lift last year.
