After 2 weeks cops visit rape victim

2010-08-11 23:12
Pretoria – The police have appointed a female investigating officer from the unit for sexual crimes to investigate the case of a mother from Pretoria who was raped, attacked with a gardening fork and left for dead along the side of the road.

On Wednesday the woman was visited by police officials for the first time since the incident took place more than two weeks ago.

She and her 7-year-old son were attacked in their room by a man wielding a gardening fork.

When the attacker kept demanding money, the little boy offered the R30 he had in his wallet. The attacker took the R30, assaulted the mother repeatedly with the garden fork, raped and kidnapped her.

She presumably jumped from the moving vehicle.

She can’t remember the incident, but was found next to the Mabopane highway outside Pretoria with a broken right arm and right leg as well as a broken jaw.

Two policemen came to fetch the woman’s statement, which her sister, who is also a police official, had taken more than a week ago.

Eugene Opperman, Gauteng police spokesperson, confirmed on Wednesday that a female official has been appointed to head up the investigation.
