Beggars arrested for rape of teenage girl

Two men were arrested following the rape of a 17-year-old Bedfordview resident.

According to the spokesperson for the Bedfordview SAPS, Warrant Officer Mduduzi Nhlabathi, a group of people walking from a shopping centre were stopped by the suspects who grabbed the victim.

“While others ran to look for help, the complainant ran towards the suspects to see where they were taking the victim. He also called the police,” said W/O Nhlabathi.

He said upon arrival, the police found the victim half naked and wrapped in a white sheet.

“She was disorientated,” said W/O Nhlabathi.

The case was allocated to Detective W/O William Madisha and Constable Malesela Ledwaba.

W/O Madisha spoke to the NEWS after the arrest.

He attributed the success to team work.

“Information obtained by Const Ledwaba led us to the main suspect who was nabbed in Daveyton. The other suspect was present when the crime took place,” said W/O Madisha.

W/O Nhlabathi said the suspects are 25 and 26 years old.

He said the suspects were well known beggars who usually stand along Nicol Road.

At the time of going to press, both suspects were still in custody.
