Assistance sought by Durban Central FCS Unit to solve rape case

DURBAN – The Durban Central Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit is pleading for assistance from the community to solve a rape case. The FCS detectives are of the view that the persons in the attached identikit can assist them in solving a case of rape.

It is alleged that on 4 November 2021 at 17:00, a 23-year-old female victim went to meet her friend at a food outlet store, on Umngeni Road in Durban to view the new residence that her friend had found. It is alleged that after their meeting, the victim was introduced to two foreign males, one of the males was introduced as the boyfriend of the victim’s friend.

The victim was requested to jump into the car so they could all go to the new place. All four of them boarded into a white vehicle which was driven by the boyfriend of the victim’s friend. The vehicle came to a stop at an unknown place in Durban where they all entered into a room which was believed to be the home of her friend.

The alleged friend of the victim had left the victim with the two males inside the house, and made an excuse of going to find water. The victim was then raped by the two unknown black males and was later dropped by the suspects in Durban CBD on the same day after they raped her.

The friends last known address was at Ntuzuma, but had since relocated. The places of residences of the two males are unknown. The Durban Central Police believe that the three people in the identikit will assist them to solve the case.

Anyone with information that will assist police to find the persons in the attached identikit should contact the investigating officer Constable Tshabalala on 084 891 7287 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
