Giyani- The South African Police Service in Limpopo express complete disapproval of the continuing tendency of couples who are still going to secluded areas of intimacy which continue to put their lives at risk.
This comes after an incident where a man and his girlfriend were attacked by unknown armed men in the bushes near Rhobeni village outside Tzaneen town.
It is alleged that a local Church Pastor aged 29 and his 24 year old girlfriend were inside the car parked at a local soccer field during the night, when two men armed with a firearm and an axe attacked them.
Police spokesperson, L.T. Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe says the suspects robbed the man two cellphones and took turns in raping the woman.
“The two suspects drove with the woman leaving the man behind and later dumped her at a bridge between Rhikhotso and Xihoko village, and they disappeared with the victim’s car.
She was later rescued by the Police and taken to hospital for medical treatment.
“The identity of the suspects is unknown and they’re still at large with no arrest made yet, but the manhunt by the Police in search of the assailants unfolds.
“The victim’s green two door sedan Corsa Lite with registration numbers BNN 066 L, which according to police investigations took the direction of Nwamitwa village after the terrible ordeal, is still missing.
“Police cordially urge members of the community to stop going to unsafe remote places for entertainment with their partners to avoid and prevent incidents of this nature from occurring.
“Anyone with information that can assist in tracing the suspects or have seen the vehicle, may contact Detective Sergeant Hlungwani at 073 594 1838”. Concluded Ngoepe.
