3 Jun 2018, Free State: A man in his 30's is expected to appear in Fouriesburg Magistrate’s Court soon on allegations of rape, kidnapping, assault, trafficking of persons for sexual purposes, crimen injuria, illegal possession of firearm and ammunition, and pointing of firearm.
He was arrested on Friday evening in Fouriesburg by members of Bethlehem Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offenses Unit (FCS). The charges relate to a complaint laid by a woman in her 20s who alleges that the suspect lured her via social media.
She accepted a Facebook invitation from the suspect in February 2018. In April, she met him in person whereupon she was taken to a house in Fouriesburg where the crimes were committed.
We appeal to anyone who might have fallen victim to crime under similar circumstances to call Bethlehem FCS Detectives on 082 854 7546 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
