Rape suspects meet the long, quick arm of the law

2013-02-22 00:00

TWO men were arrested following a high-speed car chase in Panorama and Copesville yesterday afternoon — just hours after raping a city woman.

Police spokesperson Joey Jeevan said a 24-year-old woman was raped during a robbery at her Northdale home at around 2 pm.

“It is believed that the woman and her mother (55) had just returned from shopping and had entered their home when they were confronted by three unknown men,” said Jeevan.

“It is alleged that the men threatened the woman and forced the mother into the bedroom where she was made to open the safe while the other suspects threatened and thereafter raped the daughter,” Jeevan added.

Both the women were tied up with cable ties while the men ransacked the house. They fled in the victim’s car, taking a laptop, jewellery and cellphones.

Jeevan said the details of the vehicle were circulated on the police emergency services network and officers spotted the car in the Panorama area.

“After a high-speed chase, the vehicle was brought to a stop after a collision.”

The suspects jumped out and fled. One of them was arrested by Mountain Rise police while the two others managed to escape.

Another suspect was arrested in Copesville in the early evening.

Jeevan said they would appear in court shortly.
