An 11-year-old girl was sexually assaulted while she was sleeping, allegedly by a 23-year-old man, at Mariental on Sunday.

It is alleged that while the girl, her mother and younger sibling were sleeping the suspect entered the unlocked shack and sexually assaulted the victim. When the girl became aware of what was happening, she woke up and the suspect fled. These details are contained in the Namibian's police's weekend crime report released yesterday.



Robbed and raped at home

In another incident, a 51-year-old woman was robbed by three men at Ongwediva on Friday, while one of the suspects raped her. According to the police the three suspects broke into her house and when she got home in the evening, she noticed strange footprints as she opened the gate to park her car. She walked around the house and one of the suspects ambushed her, choked her and demanded money from her. It is further alleged that the suspect who ambushed her raped her at knifepoint while the other two ransacked her car and bedroom. They stole N$140 from her purse in the car and fled. No arrest has been made.



Raped at home

In a separate incident, a 27-year-old woman was raped in Wanaheda on Saturday when suspects broke into her shack.

According to the police the suspects cut the door chain to enter her shack and were armed with a pistol and a knife. Two women were inside the shack. The intruders threatened both victims and raped one of them. The suspects are known but have not been arrested.



Growing dagga

Two men, aged 45 and 65, were arrested on Friday for cultivating 22 cannabis plants at Omaruru.

The plants weighed 14 9245 grams and were valued at N$149 450. The plantation was discovered during a police search. A 29-year-old man was arrested at Oshipumbu-shomugogo village near Ongwediva for the cultivation of cannabis plants and possession of cannabis on Saturday. A police search discovered a plantation of cannabis and bags of cannabis seeds valued at N$150.



Drowning

At Oshivelo, a 13-year-old girl drowned at the Omulambaowambo Bridge while she was swimming on Friday.

The body was retrieved from the water by police divers.

She has been identified as Tresia Nghilukilwa, a grade 8 learner at Uukumwe Combined School.
