Two rapists on the run


A 37-year-old woman was raped in an open veld in Ext. 4 at Khutsong on Wednesday, 2 August. The incident took place at around 21:00 when she met an unknown man in Phase 2 while on her way to the taxi rank. The man apparently asked her what she would be doing later that night before dragging her to the veld and raping her. ‘Women are requested not to walk alone during the night. They should be observant and alert and scream for help if there is a need,’ urged them Khutsong SAPS communications officer, Capt. Eddie Boboko. In the early morning of Saturday, 5 August, a man raped a 12-year-old girl in Ext. 3 in Khutsong. According to the police, an unknown masked man carrying a panga entered the house and dragged the girl out of the house and around the back, where he raped her. The suspect is still at large. At this stage, there have been no arrests in either of the cases. The station commander of the Khutsong SAPS, Col Melinda Prinsloo urges the community to come forward with any information that would lead to successful arrests. Contact the Khutsong SAPS on 018 783 9022 or 086 001 0111.
