Soweto boy (5) abducted

A five-year-old boy has been abducted by a man and two women in Bram Fischerville, Soweto.

The boy and his 16-year-old sister were alone at home in Bram Fischerville at about 8am when the three arrived in an SUV vehicle, Gauteng police spokesperson Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said today.

He said the man and women told the children their grandmother was looking for them and they should come to Meadowlands with them.

“When they got to Meadowlands, the vehicle made a U-turn back to Bram Fischerville.”

When they got there, the two women gave the 16-year-old R10 to buy the five-year-old a cooldrink.

“They then drove away with the five-year-old. A case of missing person has been opened,” Makhubela said.

No arrests had been made.
