Man arrested for kidnap, rape
Johannesburg - A man was arrested in Jabulani, Soweto, on Tuesday night in connection with the rape and kidnapping of a 23-year-old woman, Gauteng police said.
"The man took the lady from the East Rand and drove her to a house in Zola in Soweto. He raped her while she was in that house," Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said on Wednesday.
