Uncle flees after raping niece

30 July 2019 | Crime

The Namibian police are tracing a man accused of raping his eight-year-old niece multiple times between January and July this year.

A report issued yesterday by the police states that the attacks on the eight-year-old child took place at Ohembe village in the Omusati Region. The report states that the suspect, who lived in the same homestead as the victim, is suspected of having fled to Angola.

An inquest has been opened into the death of a 14-year-old boy, Erickson Moses, who died on Saturday morning after falling into a well. He had been sent to the well to collect water, the police stated in their crime report. Another child killed in a hit-and-run accident at Rehoboth on Saturday. The police said the 11-year-old girl, identified as Danelle Mouton, died on the spot after she was hit by a car, driven by a 47-year-old female suspect. A case of culpable homicide, reckless and negligent driving and failure to assist the injured after an accident has been opened.

The police are investigating the fatal poisoning of four lions in the Sesfontein area. Three male and one female lions died after eating poisoned meat that was placed in the bush by three male suspects who were arrested on Saturday.

The Sesfontein police on Saturday discovered the lion carcasses and subsequently traced footprints to a house in the area, where zebra and gemsbok carcasses were found. Shoes matching the footprints were also discovered and the three men were arrested.

A case of rape and assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm is being investigated after a woman was stabbed and raped at Epukiro on Friday night. It is alleged she knew the man accused of raping her. The police say the suspect found her walking back to her house at around 20:30 on Friday evening, pushed her to the ground and stabbed her in the left thigh before raping her. The suspect is known to the police but has not yet been arrested. Several cases of reckless and negligent driving are being investigated, including a case where an eight-year-old boy sustained serious head injuries on Friday afternoon on a road in the Omusati Region.

A case of murder was opened after a 30-year-old man, Abraham Nandi, died from a stab wound sustained in Havana on Saturday night. His body was discovered by members of the public. On the same day, John Julius Amutenya (24) died at the Katutura state hospital after he had sustained several stab wounds. A case of murder was opened at the Wanaheda police station, and a 23-year-old male suspect has been arrested.
