Face­book rape probe

Pretoria News Weekend - - NEWS -

PO­LICE in Port El­iz­a­beth yes­ter­day said they were in­ves­ti­gat­ing eight cases of rape after at­tack­ers al­legedly used Face­book to lure their vic­tims.

Po­lice spokesper­son Cap­tain An­dre Beetge said the at­tack­ers used var­i­ous tac­tics to tar­get the women, who were be­tween 18 and 25 years old.

Beetge said the in­ci­dents hap­pened in the Mother­well and Kwaza­khele ar­eas of Port El­iz­a­beth.

“It seems like they put up a fake pro­file pic­ture of some­one who is de­sir­able… On the day he wants to meet them, he has an ex­cuse and tells the woman he will send some­one else to col­lect her.” – ANA
