NELSPRUIT:  Police are looking for a man apparently with a severely injured private part who is alleged to have raped a three month pregnant woman.

The incident took place yesterday, 08 January 2018, at a plantation on the Spionkop Road outside White River, when the woman was hitch-hiking with her five-year-old child headed to the clinic. A vehicle with two occupants, a white Toyota Tazz offered her a lift, however along the road she was pointed with a firearm, ordered not to scream and drove with her to the bushes. One of the men forcefully raped her at knifepoint in front of her child. Further information revealed that during the process, the woman managed to bite the private part of the man who ran away after the ordeal and currently not found.

We appeal to all health institutions that should they found a man with an injured private part, they must as soon as possible contact Constable Solly Mabuza on 082 730 7590 or call Crime Stop number 08600 10111.
