Lobatse Police are on the hunt for a man who raped a 22-year old woman and left her in the bush near Molapowabojang.
Superintendent Balisi Ntamba confirmed that the matter was reported to them on Friday afternoon. It is alleged that on the night before the incident the victim, together with her friends, went for entertainment at Sports Bar in Lobatse where they met the alleged rapist, known only as Lefika.
They then asked him to take them to Ozone night club where the victim is said to have asked the man to drop her at her house as she was tired.
When they left the night club, Lefika is said to have claimed to have forgotten something at his house in Molapowabojang and the victim agreed to accompany him before being dropped off.
Whilst on the way the victim is said to have fallen asleep and woke up at around 4am only to find that Lefika had parked the car in the bush.
He is said to have then ordered her to undress before he raped her. The woman told the police that she did not know if the suspect used a condom and that she did not even know the vehicle registration number. “We’re still pursuing the investigations, but for now I can only advice members of the public, especially women to be responsible enough and take care of themselves instead of putting their lives at risk by relying on strangers
