The 28 year old Indian male was arrested by members of Reaction Unit South Africa after he robbed and assaulted a prostitute.

Reaction Officers were dispatched to Old Main Road in Ottawa after receiving a call from a member of public who reported hearing a woman screaming for help at a nearby abandoned building. Upon arrival a 30 year old woman informed Officers that she was a prostitute and was approached by an Indian male who asked to have intercourse with her.

After proceeding to an abandoned building the woman undressed when the suspect began assaulting her and robbed her of her BlackBerry cellphone and R150 in cash. The suspect then left the woman bleeding from an injury to her head and fled the scene.

The victim provided Officers with a clothing description of her attacker. While on patrol RUSA Members spotted a suspect matching the description fleeing on the R102. When the suspect noticed the approaching Officers he fled through an open field. Officers pursued the man on foot and apprehended him.

While being interviewed he confessed to having intercourse with the woman and thereafter robbing her of her valuables. The stolen cellphone and cash was recovered in his possession.

The Riet River resident was placed under arrest and handed over to authorities.
