Reaction Officers proceeded to the location and searched for the child but were later informed that the family and members of the community organized a search party and located the child on the R102. The girl was then taken back to her residence.

RUSA Medics proceeded to the home and on arrival met with the child who explained that while walking to a tuck shop with friends she was accosted by a man who was dark in complexion dressed in a white t-shirt and black pants. He convinced her to leave the group and informed her that required her assistance in collecting R800 owed to him.

Paramedics found semen on her clothing.

The girl proceeded with the man to the tennis courts where he attempted to strangle her before he raped her. Her family launched a search party after she failed to return home and located her along the R102.
