Man arrested for kidnap, rape

2011-12-07 12:30

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.

According to Makhubela, the woman did not know the 27-year-old man. The man drove her back to the East Rand, where she went to police and opened a case of rape and told the police where he lived.

"He was arrested immediately."

The rape took place at the house of the man's parents.

The woman was taken to the hospital for treatment and counselling.

The man would face charges of rape and kidnapping in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

      He should appear on a special African feature episode of America's Dumbest Criminals

    Unbelievable. Glad they caught the guy so fast.

      michielbester - 2011-12-07 12:52

      Only because of his own stupidity, who knows how long the police would've taken to find him if she didn't know (if at all)

  • Sandra - 2011-12-07 12:41

    There is just no end to these terrible savage people

  • Flynn - 2011-12-07 12:46

    The judges of these rape cases should never ever feel sorry for rapists. When the judges are sentencing these idiots, the judges must feel like their own mother/wife/sister/daughter that has been raped by these men. Give them the full sentence and let them be raped by inmates in jail

  • Koos - 2011-12-07 12:47

    eesshh.... lekkeeer stuuupaadd!

  • Tommy - 2011-12-07 12:50

    all rapists should be dropped off at my place for ten minutes on their way to prison. after 2 mins they'll be begging for the cells.

  • Lana-May - 2011-12-07 12:56

    ok either there is more to this story or this guy is the worlds biggest idiot! If he planned on raping this woman, why drive ALL the way from the East Rand, take her to his parents house AND then drive her back to the East Rand? In some cases the woman seems very keen until something goes wrong.... In all the other rape stories the rapist wouldnt be so nice about it, not that rape is nice, its terrible, I just think this sounds too fishy.....

      Xclusivdj - 2011-12-07 13:13

      also thinking the same Lana. There's "KFC" in this story

      khutso.b - 2011-12-07 13:42

      fishy or not... no one has the right to rape

      Lana-May - 2011-12-07 13:51

      I totally agree.... and im not saying that the girl wasnt raped, I just said that it doesnt sound like a typical rape case. We read about rape cases every day and this just doesnt make sense.... or like I said, the guy is seriously retarted....

      Marion - 2011-12-07 15:51

      I actually just came back to that train of thought myself Lana-May. Sounds like it may be a case of someone not paying for services rendered more than rape... or woman scorned... first time I've ever heard of a rapist doing a round trip of 100kms to rape a woman he doesn't even know.

  • Kala - 2011-12-07 12:56

    There are more people killed and raped in South Africa on a daily basis than in war torn countries like Afghanistan. If the same number of people are killed in a month in another country they call it genocide. Look at the headlines on the home page, most of them are about murder and rape. WTF

  • Sharon - 2011-12-07 13:12

    I say again cut off his penis and rub acid on his stump........let him get raped everyday in jail in every single hole.......maybe then he will understand what women go through

  • khutso.b - 2011-12-07 13:39

    minimum sentence for rape must be changed to a life sentence... this must be instilled in everyone's rape, you get life sentence!

  • Mashudu - 2011-12-07 13:41

    Sick..Bring back death penalty.

  • makatika - 2011-12-07 13:43

    My question is how do you drive with someone you don’t know? Why did she not scream or the guy’s parent were not there. I am not condoning this but just tired of ladies taking advantages of guys. If she is a prostitute I understand it will be wrong for a Guy not to pay, but I would suggest ladies demand their payment in advance and even if they are not paid that should not be classified as rape but something else like bridge of promise or something We might jump to conclusion but this is probably the last time we will hear about this story and therefore would not know how it ended.

      makatika - 2011-12-07 14:01

      My advice to guys is that if you feel like buying a prostitute rather go to the professional and do it there and avoid all this troubles

  • raegan.mcreed - 2011-12-07 13:45

    was the women a prostitute and the client never pay, so she cries rape, there should be more to this story, very poor reporting news 24, was this women held gun or knife point? ''pick up a women, rape her and drop her back off''... does not sound right, more info news24!

      Lana-May - 2011-12-07 13:52

      my point exactly...

      Deon - 2011-12-07 13:59

      Prostitutes can also be raped. Two wrongs does not make it right.

  • Tulani - 2011-12-07 14:04

    the guy didnt pay her...... or news24 somethng is missing from the story, details ( drove her 2 his parents house the drove her back to east rand ) this is the 1st to me logically no sense at all.

  • Tsheko - 2011-12-07 14:16

    the girl knew the dude, but its still rape.

  • Tsheko - 2011-12-07 14:18

    the girl knew dude, but its still rape, but i am afraid the girl is not honest and this might count againt her in court.

  • Makhosazane - 2011-12-07 14:49

    Haaai no this lady is hiding something - a rapist who even drives to drop you off back where they took you. Plus how did she accurately remember the route to his house while in that traumatic state...I stay in Soweto and even I dont know my way around other sections of Soweto and she is from the East Rand...something not right here, News24 needs to investigate more.

  • Santapola - 2011-12-07 14:50

    There is no rape can u rape and u take the person home? this girl knows this man

  • timmy.ditsele - 2011-12-07 15:19

    i for one smell a rat here.did he use a gunknife anything to force her into the car?did she scream try to run away?While inside the car did she try to get attention of other motorists?Too many unknowns.

  • mokgadim - 2011-12-07 16:48

    The story does have a lot of holes in it but as for whether she screamed or tried to get anyone's attention, i can safely say when you are in that situation, you don't think like you would normally think...

  • Charmain - 2011-12-07 20:16

    Uhm, he KIDNAPPED her. Stop trying to justify rape. All who aired their "suspicions" that the woman is lying, you can pass as rapists too if that is how you reason. This is a clear case of another self-righteous man who thought he can just take what he wanted. Hang him, I say!
