A 22-year-old women was raped in a veld near Kimberley during the early hours of Sunday, 19 August, while she was busy with – what the police described as – recreational purposes with her new Facebook boyfriend.

The incident happened at about 01:00 after the woman was visited by the man whom she met through Facebook, and they decided to take a drive.

They were reportedly hijacked by an unknown man who drove with them on the N12 and dropped them off near Christiana after he raped the woman while the man was locked in the boot of the vehicle. He then alle­gedly robbed them of their cellphones and cash.

“The Facebook boyfriend has since disappeared after they had to hitch-hike back to Kimberley,” police spokesperson Capt. Olebogeng Tawana said.

Members of the Frances Baard Cluster’s Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences (FCS) Unit need assistance in solving this and two other cases. The FCS has released identikits (see photos) of three men wanted in three alleged rape incidents in Kimberley from May to August.

In the second case an unknown man, believed to be in his 20s, is sought in connection with an alleged rape incident on Friday, 13 July, at about 23:00.

It happened near Phutanang’s Langbome next to the R31 where the 26-year-old woman and her boyfriend were attacked while sitting in a vehicle.

  • Their vehicle was pelted with stones and the boyfriend locked in the boot. The suspect then apparently raped the woman. They were then robbed of cash and cellphones, and the radio system was ripped from the dashboard. The third incident involves a 25-year-old woman who was allegedly attacked by an unknown man on Sunday, 6 May, at approximately 20:30.

He allegedly hit her with an object on the head while she was walking alone from a tavern in Greenpoint. She fainted and later woke up, half naked, in the Greenpoint grave yard. The suspect then demanded her cellphone pincode and apparently assaulted her until she disclosed the pincode.
