The Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit in Galeshewe is appealing to the community to assist them in tracing two suspects who allegedly kidnapped and raped a 16 year old girl.

The incident happened on Sunday, 23 July, at about 17:00 after the victim parted with her friend in Mogwera Street, Galeshewe.

According to the police, the victim was approached by two men driving a white Polo Vivo.

They forced her into the vehicle and drove off with her in the direction of the Barkly West road and allegedly raped her in an open veld.

The victim managed to escape and told her family about the ordeal.

A case was opened at the Galeshewe police station, Sgt Majang Skalkie said in a statement.

Both suspects are 25 to 30 years old, speak Sotho, are dark in complexion and both have dreadlocks.

The one is slender and the other one well-built.

Anyone who can help to trace the suspects is asked to contact the investigating officer, Det.Sgt Bonolo Masao, on 082-495-4725 or on 053-807-6161.
