Bloemfontein: A 30 year old suspect was arrested after he allegedly raped his two cousins and stabbed the other.

It was on Monday; the 07 December 2020, when Kopanong police received information about the rape suspect in Namibia Square; Bloemfontein.  It was later discovered that the suspect, who is a cousin to his victims, arrived at the victim’s place of residence, alleging that he will sleep over for the night.

While they were all asleep, the 30 year old male allegedly took out a knife threatening 25-year-old cousin and raped her and collected the 19-year-old cousin and also continued to rape her. The ordeal continued for the whole night until one of the victims escaped, after the suspect fell asleep.

The victim went to report the matter to the neighbours and police were summoned to the scene. On arrival, police found the suspect still sleeping. He was arrested by Kopanong SAPS for alleged rape charges and assault.

He will appear in the Bloemfontein magistrate court soon.
