“A multi-disciplinary operation involving members of the head office crime intelligence and police in Sedibeng have cracked yet another kidnapping case when they arrested three suspects, a father and his two sons for the alleged kidnapping of a 27-year-old woman,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Robert Netshiunda.

On Thursday of last week, the police squad was informed that two women were allegedly kidnapped and hijacked as they were driving in Polokong, Sedibeng, south of Joburg.

“One woman was found along the N1 South on the same night and the hijacked vehicle was also recovered. The search for the other woman ensued and she was rescued unharmed on Saturday, August 6,” said Netshiunda.

“The three suspects, aged 45, 27, and 21 years old will appear before the Vanderbijlpark Magistrate’s Court on Monday,” he said.

In connection with the kidnapping of Refiloe Malope in May, a police officer from Gauteng and an alleged accomplice were indicted on kidnapping and obstructing justice charges at June and appeared in the Nebo Magistrate’s Court.

Two individuals were seen forcing the 31-year-old woman against her will into the boot of a car. On May 9, the kidnapping occurred in the Limpopo community of Kgaphamadi, which is part of the Hlogotlou policing district.
