Facebook rape probe
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
