The Springs Police are urging people to refrain from opening false cases and wasting the police’s time.

This comes after a woman told police she had been kidnapped and assaulted by a group of men.

Springs police spokesperson Capt Johannes Ramphora says the woman’s partner became concerned after she didn’t come back from getting water outside.
