Dad hid in ceiling with kidnapped child
Johannesburg - A man has been
arrested for allegedly kidnapping his five-year-old daughter in Orange Farm,
south of Johannesburg, police said on Tuesday.
He was caught while hiding with
the child in the ceiling of a house in Palm Springs, Vereeniging, on Monday
afternoon, Lietenant-Colonel Katlego Mogale said.
She said the 35-year-old man had
been on the run since Friday when he took the girl from his estranged wife's home.
"The dad took the child and
promised to bring her back to her mother after a few hours, but he never
did," Mogale said. "The woman opened a kidnapping case after her
estranged husband failed to return their daughter at the agreed time."
He was expected to face a
kidnapping charge soon in the Vereeniging Magistrate's Court.
