The man in the picture is being sought by police in connection with a rape case under investigation.

VEREENIGING. – Police are looking for a man in connection with a rape incident that took place in Bedworth Park. According to the victim, she was on her way to catch a taxi on Barrage Road when she met the unknown suspect who was also going into Bedworth Park. The victim alleged that the suspect grabbed her school bag and showed her a knife on his waist, subsequently ordering her to keep quiet and follow his instructions. He then took her to an open veld and raped her.

Police spokesperson Captain Fikile Funda says: “Anyone who might recognise the suspect can contact the nearest police station or Crime Stop on 0800 101111, or the investigating officer Morake Khoali on 082 7820 739/083 2974 382.” Funda further says that since the arrest of one suspect called Cobra Ndaba, house robberies in student accommodations have decreased significantly. However, theft of motor vehicles is on the rise, especially older models. Theft of gate motors are also increasing various areas. “We urge the community to secure their gate motors with brackets you can lock.”

People who do business in CBD have to be very careful when displaying valuable items such as jewelry. We urge them to rather take it off and leave it where it is out of sight.

Vereeniging police managed to arrest a total of 20 people for various crimes. They will appear in court soon.
