A 12-year-old girl was raped in Ondangwa last Friday at around 14:00.

According to police reports, the incident at Onatsi village allegedly took place while the minor was on her way from school. The suspect came from behind, held his hands over her eyes and mouth and threatened her with a knife.

He then dragged the minor to the ground and forcibly had sex with her without her consent. The suspect has not been caught and is still at large.

In related news, last Thursday, a 13-year-old was raped by a 41-year-old Angolan man in Oshomukwiyu village in the Endola constituency.

It is alleged that the suspect found the victim sleeping with other children in a room. He reportedly undressed her and had sexual intercourse with her without her consent. The suspect is the boyfriend of the victim's aunt, who was not at home at the time.

He was arrested and appeared in court yesterday.

Also last Thursday, a 26-year-old woman was raped in Outjo’s 7de Laan location.
