Rape suspect arrested for attacking woman

AT about 03h00 on Saturday, 28 September near the Caribbean Bar at Mondesa in Swakopmund, a young woman was kidnapped by two assailants while on her way home and raped repeatedly at knifepoint. According to the police in the Erongo region, the 22-year old victim was walking home in the early hours of that morning when two unknown men approached her and forced her at knifepoint to a nearby empty house. “The two unknown suspects ordered the victim to undress herself, which she did out of fear and they had sexual intercourse with the victim,” the police said.
