Man nabbed for rape and trafficking of 26-year-old woman from KZN
A 38-year-old Northern Cape man has been arrested on a charge of human trafficking, police said on Wednesday.
The arrest comes after the Hawks received information about a 26-year-old woman who was allegedly trafficked from Pietermarizburg in KwaZulu-Natal last month.
“It is claimed that the victim was allegedly locked up at a house, raped and repeatedly assaulted by the perpetrator,” said Capt Nomthandazo Mnisi.
A joint operation by the Hawks and Kimberley police led to the arrest of the man.
He is expected to appear in the Kimberley magistrate's court on Friday.
