Forensic evidence leads to arrest of rape suspect

Forensic evidence left at a scene found after a rape and robbery of an elderly woman in Allanridge in February has led to the arrest of a 37-year-old suspect.

The suspect appeared in the Odendaalsrus Magistrate’s Court on 2 Mei.

The case has been posponed for bail application.

On 22 February a 78-year-old woman was overpowered in her home in Allanridge. She was bound before she was raped.

The house was ransacked, and a DVD player, three plasma television sets and four speakers were stolen.

The suspect left the house on foot.

Forensic experts were summoned to the scene.

The commander of the Allanridge Detective Services, Capt. Priscilla Britz, and the investigating officer, Const. Sello Sekhonyana, investigated the matter and made the arrest.

“The Police Service is well equipped to ensure that perpetrators of the heinous crimes are brought to book to face the might of the law. This shows the arm of the law is not too short to reach criminals where they are hiding. My appreciation goes to the investigator as well as the Commander of the Detective Services for ensuring that a thorough investigation was conducted” says the Station Commander of Allanridge, Lt Col. Disebo Tshabalala.
