Police in Motherwell are looking for 28-year-old Yanga Ntsiko after the abduction, rape and assault of a 20-year-old woman in Ngwevana Street, NU9, Motherwell, Port Elizabeth, over the weekend.

"The incident took place on Saturday, at 20:00," said police spokesperson, Captain Andre Beetge.

"It is alleged that the suspect, driving a silver VW Polo took the 20-year-old woman to his home in Ncuncu Street, NU8, where she was locked up against her will, assaulted and raped, before being let go again by the suspect.

"The suspect is also believed to be on the run from police after a murder and attempted murder took place the next morning 26 November 2017 at 05:00 in Ngwevana Street, NU9."

Captain Beetge said that this follows after two suspects knocked at the door of the home of 51-year-old Luyanda Patric Mncayise.

"Whe he opened the door the armed suspects said they were looking for his son.

"When he told them he was not home and turned to close the door, he was shot and killed in cold blood in the back," he described.

"When a next door neighbour, the 66-year-old Nosinda Suthu came out to see what was happening, she was also shot and injured in her stomach."

The suspects then fled in their silver VW Polo. 

Anybody with information that could lead to the whereabouts of the suspect can contact the investigating officer, Detective Warrant Officer Leslie Kilian on 082 410 7492 or Crime Stop 08600 10111.

"Police wish to urge community not to attempt to arrest or confront the person on their own, and the suspect should be regarded as armed and dangerous."

The Motherwell Station Commander, Brigadier Ernie Neveling, added; "We are appealing to our communities for their assistance and information in finding this dangerous suspect."
