The Edenvale police on the East Rand has issued a warning for all women to be cautious when walking home after a woman was pulled into a field and raped in the Greenstone area.

Acting Edenvale police spokesperson Sergeant Jacob Mashile said the rape took place in the field along Aitken Road, Bedfordview Edenvale News reported.

The woman was walking from Greenstone to her home in Edenvale when she was attacked last Friday.

In July 2014, a mother issued a similar warning after her daughter was allegedly raped in the same field.

On Friday, July 25, members of the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Police Department’s (EMPD) bylaw enforcement unit removed three Rape Hot Spot signs at the intersection of Palliser and Aitken roads after they were deemed illegal.
