SAPS in Gauteng have asked the public for their help in identifying a suspect, accused of killing his girlfriend and an 11-year-old two months ago. The incident, which took place in Nellmapius, also concerns the rape of this aforementioned child.

Heinous crime leaves Gauteng SAPS baffled

The police have not yet been able to nail down the suspect, and they’ve turned to any potential witnesses who may be able to help them in their investigations. Details of the case are fairly gruesome, and have been circulated again on Tuesday:

  • The double-murder AND rape of an 11-year-old child took place on 8 March 2022.
  • This occurred in Nellmapius, which is to the east of Pretoria and the south of Mamelodi.
  • Sadly, the partner was choked to death, and the youngster was sexual assaulted before her demise.
  • The suspect has been on the run for the past 63 days – or nine weeks exactly.

Public asked to help in search for murderer/rapist
