Two-year-old kidnapped, raped

17 October 2018 | Crime

A 20-year-old man is behind bars after he allegedly kidnapped and raped his two-year-old niece yesterday, who was discovered, following an extensive police manhunt, alive but seriously injured on the outskirts of Outjo this morning.
The Namibian police launched a search party at midnight last night, after the family of the girl reported her missing.
The police confirmed that the suspect initially kidnapped the girl as well as two boys aged two and four yesterday morning, but the two boys returned home later that day.
After the search was launched at midnight, police traced the suspect who was “covered with blood on some parts of his body” and immediately taken in for questioning.
The search continued, and at around 07:00 this morning, the girl was discovered in bushes near the outskirts of the town.
She was seriously injured and taken to the Outjo hospital.
A medical examination confirmed that she had been raped, the police confirmed.
She remains in a stable condition, Chief-Inspector Kaunapawa Shikwambi confirmed.
The suspect, whose name has not yet been released, is set to make his first court appearance at the Outjo Magistrate's Court tomorrow.
Shikwambi said the police also arrested two suspects yesterday afternoon in Khomasdal who were found in possession of two blocks of cannabis, ten cannabis parcels as well as loose cannabis valued at N$96 000.
The duo are scheduled to appear in the Katutura Magistrate's Court tomorrow.
The suspects are a 38-year-old Tanzanian male and a 24-year-old Namibian female.
