Police investigate eight cases of young girls being abducted and sexually assaulted in Vosman

Police have found the modus operandi used by the suspects which suggests that the suspects supposedly prey on the unsuspecting victims when sent from their homes to nearby shops.

Vosman police request the public’s help in identifying dangerous rape suspects.

A syndicate terrorising the KwaGuqa community was reported where minors were abducted and sexually assaulted.

Following this incident, Vosman Police Station has recorded a total of eight cases.

Station Commander of Vosman Brigadier Lindani Ndlovu said that as a result, this prompted a team of detectives to thoroughly conduct a docket analysis to assess the complexity of the investigation.

“A preliminary conclusion drawn suggests that police might be facing an investigation involving individual(s) with a pedophilic disorder(s) as only young girls are victims and have been raped in a short space of time.”

 

“Currently, police in Vosman working in tandem with the Nkangala District Detectives, have roped in services of astute experts to assist with the connecting of all the dots in this investigation.

Identity kits of the alleged suspect(s) have been extracted and will form part of the police probe hence the request for help,” Ndlovu explained.

He went on to say that the police have found the modus operandi used by the suspects which suggests that the suspects supposedly prey on the unsuspecting victims when sent from their homes to nearby shops.

“The suspects then force the victims into their vehicles, kidnap them to secluded spots where the victims are assaulted,” Ndlovu mentioned.

The station commander described the attacks inflicted on the young girls as atrocious attacks.

He thanked the community of Vosman and surrounding areas for demonstrating profound solidarity with the police and vowed to extend their unwavering helping hand with a solid view to resolve this investigation.

Brigadier Lindani Ndlovu has requested the community not to take the law into their own hands or accuse each other during the investigation but to involve the police if anyone is suspected of being a target of interest.

“The brutal rapes inflicted on the vulnerable and innocent girls, totally do not augur well with anyone and police surely understand the gravity and the current high tensions,” he ended.

He concluded by urging the community to abide by the law and advised the community and parents to make sure that they know where their children are.
