Cops arrested in Pretoria for rape

2013-11-07 07:12

Johannesburg - Two police officers were arrested in connection with rape in Atteridgeville, Pretoria on Wednesday, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate [Ipid] said.

Ipid spokesperson Moses Dlamini said the officers, aged 22 and 51, allegedly raped a teenager in September.

The 17-year-old girl had an argument with her boyfriend at a tavern in Atteridgeville and the officers, dressed in full uniform, intervened.

"The victim asked the police officers to take her home and the officers agreed and drove with her in the police vehicle."

The driver stopped the vehicle and allegedly raped the teenager at the back of the van. The other officer also allegedly raped her, said Dlamini.

"After driving some distance, the girl was ordered to get out of the police vehicle near the police station."

The girl told her sister who reported the matter to the police.

Dlamini said the officers were picked out at an identity parade.

They would appear in the Atteridgeville Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

    lovely police officers... so who do we turn to for protection. but then again I have seen police drinking at their police station.... SA does not have people who we can rely on to protect us,we do not even have an army or proper airforce..... lovely SA....

      I have a hope on Phiyega that this type of criminal elements within the Police Service will be issues of the past the time she leaves the Service.She is on top of the game as I see now.Crime is Crime and Criminal remains a Criminal wherever he/she goes so let us not politisize Crime at all.

      To serve and protect - wonder if the ANC will condemn this as strongly as the T-shirts yesterday????

      Bheki Dladla - 2013-11-07 08:11

      In Full Police uniform can you believe it??? How shocking....!!! Rape being a serious issue and yet you have those in the law who disregard everything and do as they pleased. Appalling!!!

      Badger - 2013-11-07 08:54

      And then everyone wants to know why we hate the f*****g cops so much... And then everyone wants to know why we do not trust the cops... And then everyone wants to know why cops get killed... Where is that useless "chief" ? Can't wait to hear what she has to say.

      @Lionel, you have raised a very good question there about the 17 year old girl being in a tarven. Her parents must be charged with negligence honestly as she is still a full minor as per the law. Why are her parents not doing anything about this?? Had it not been for her sister to report this matter, none of this would have surfaced. What kind of parents does she honestly have. As for the 51 year old police officer whom I think should have known better, he must be jailed immediately. He basically raped his own daughter as he is old enough to be her father. 34 year age gap sies!! He stooped so low and I just wonder what his family must be thinking right now. He doesnt deserve to be a cop really. He is a disgrace to this country and society.

      The police chief is probably going to blame Apartheid for this.

    Who to trust?

      Aborted News - 2013-11-07 07:40

      I love the SAPS! They went out of their way to help this teenager with her sexual problems. Epic fail!

      I used to have a high respect for police officers but now all I see at times are just thugs!!

  • Nemukumbini Shonza - 2013-11-07 07:54

    This is SAPS. "You are on your own" Here in South Africa its every man for himself.

      Tol Smith - 2013-11-07 09:00

      If you take matters into your own hands you go to jail, because you may not beat a police officer even if they rape. South africa is dangerous. “ See, the world's a dangerous and unbalanced place. So I realized, the only way to bring peace was to make sure that everyone could be dangerous!" This is a qoute from a weapons dealer in a game. Holds true in SA

  • Andre de Leeuw - 2013-11-07 08:01

    For effs sake SA! get your $h#t together! enough is enough!!

  • John Stoltz - 2013-11-07 08:09

    Hi Riah & Nathi, please show the tax paying citizens how the ANC Gov act against SAPS officiers committing a crime against humanity ! Or is this poor Lady not considered human by the ANC regime ?? Once done, we will support the ANC's crying out against the T-shirts in KZN !!

  • Winifred Watson - 2013-11-07 09:01

    Our Police force used to be one of the best, look what it is now, a lot of criminals employed and given blue uniforms which they think gives them the right to do as they please. Its a shame now, we cant trust our men and woman in blue, they are not held in high esteem anymore because there are still some very good cops in the force and doing a very good job, yet it is those criminals who managed to find their way into a uniform that is bringing the force down. If everybody had to vote today sure the government would get a shock because as far as confidence in the police is concerned, they would see the police as criminals not fighters of crime.

      Manzini Moss - 2013-12-04 14:48

      Our police haver never been one of the best anywhere. Same ole same ole rubbish. From Nazi racists to incompetent criminals. Same ole same ole

    No offence but south africa is going to be one the worst countries in Africa,I mean there's no excuse for this kind of behaviour,even Malawian police won't act this way. Ask Shower head....

  • Jacqui Daane Van Rensburg - 2013-11-07 09:56

    The top goes on a state visit to the neighbours and at home policemen rape a young girl. I hope the Namibians ask minister Mthetwa about that.

  • rory - 2013-11-07 10:09

    Let me put my dog away!

  • Just Me - 2013-11-07 12:40

    Now just what would happen if the 17 year old girl made up the story? Both Policemen will be arrested, put in jail - no questions asked. Lets say they just offered her a lift and only went as far as the police station and the girl was unhappy to walk further. It is easy to say that I've been raped. Now these men are in danger of loosing their jobs. Don't understand me wrong, if they did rape her, they must get what is coming to them but, if they are innocent ..........

  • Elliott Serumula Putjishi - 2013-11-07 13:50

    those cops dat r arrested,minister an commsnr mus put dat dogs in jail,an thrw awy de keys.duty of police iz 2 prtct,obsrv an arrst nt 2 rape.if police rape our sstr wat mus we spssd 2 do as a nation.
