Four suspects are due to appear in the Plettenberg Bay Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, 27 August 2020 in connection with the kidnapping of a 23-year-old man earlier this week.

It is alleged that two men visited the residence of the victim at Edward Street, Qolweni, Plettenberg Bay on Tuesday, 25 August 2020, when they forced him into the boot of a vehicle. They drove to an undisclosed location where the four occupants of the vehicle repeatedly assaulted him with stump objects. He sustained multiple injuries and was later released by the assailants.

Intensive investigation into this incident took the police to various houses in Qolweni where four suspects were apprehended during the early hours of Wednesday, 26 August 2020. The suspects, aged between 31 and 42, are still in custody. They are facing charges of kidnapping and assault with the intent to commit grievance bodily harm. More charges could be added as the investigation unfolds.
