George police need help finding these two for raping 11-year-old girl

The George Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS) has appealed to the public for help in tracking down a man and a woman, who have been implicated in a recent rape case that occurred in Pacaltsdorp on the 3rd of May.

According to police spokesperson, Capt. Malcolm Pojie, "Preliminary information indicates that the 11-years-old girl (the victim) went to a tuck-shop whilst on her way to school at about 07:00 that morning, when the suspects approached and call her to their car.

"She refused to get into the car where after they followed her and the female occupant got out of the car, grabbed her by the hand and foot and forced her into the back of the car with a man behind the wheel. They tied her hand and covered her mouth."

He said that they then drove towards the Pacaltsdorp Industrial area where the man allegedly raped her two times while the female accomplice looked on and enticed the male suspect.

"They threw her out of the car after they finished and drove off. She managed to walk back to her residence in Pacaltsdorp. Initially she did not report her ordeal to her mother," Capt Pojie said.

"She only reported her ordeal to her mother a week later when the case was then reported to the Pacaltsdorp Police and handed over for investigation to the George FCS.

"The only description that the victim could give at the time was that the suspects drove a blue coloured car, suspected to be an older model Opel Cadet or similar shaped car. ID Kits are attached."

He added that the child received medical attention and SAPS forensic social workers attached to the FCS unit work with her and assisted the investigating officer with the general preliminary investigation into the matter. 

"We appeal to anyone with information regarding the incident or whereabouts of the suspect to please contact Sgt Yolande Carolus of the George FCS at 044 8034621, 083 302 7510 or Crime stop at 08600 10111."
