The Verulam SAPS has issued a warning to the community to be extra cautious when using public transport late at night if they are not familar with the area and the public transport they are making use of.  This is after a case of rape and robbery was reported to them last week.

Communications Officer at the Verulam SAPS, Captain Henry Kisten said that the twenty-six-year-old victim alleges that at approximately 19H40, she boarded a taxi at the Verulam taxi rank.

“She reported that she informed the driver that she is going to Osindisweni and the driver told her that she can jump in.  Whilst travelling in the taxi she noticed a sign board displaying that the taxi was going to Hazelmere. 

The taxi stopped to drop off  passengers and she was left with two other male passengers.  The driver continued driving”, Captain Kisten said.  “The two male passengers asked the driver to stop.

They then dragged the victim from the taxi and the driver continued driving.  The suspects allegedly took the victim to a nearby bush where they robbed her and both suspects raped her.  A case of rape and robbery is being investigated”, he said.

“We are urging the community to be extra cautious when using public transport.  They must be conscious of people in the surroundings and any suspicious-looking persons that are following them.  People should refrain from boarding public transport late in the evenings if they can foresee they will be become victims of crime”, he concluded.
