Woman (25) kidnapped, ‘drugged’ and robbed in Manors

A SARNIA woman was abducted by four men in a dark blue BMW while walking on Quail Place in Manors on Friday, 2 March.

The woman who chose to remain anonymous claims she was forcefully administered a foreign substance in what she believes could have been an attempt to rape her, and then dumped shortly after at Lahee Park.

The 25-year-old woman said she was on her way to Fourways Spar in Manors from work around 1pm when she noticed a dark blue BMW 320 pull up at the intersection of Glenugie and Quail Place.

“Two men jumped out the left-hand-side of the vehicle and forced me into the vehicle on my back. There were four men inside the vehicle – two in the front and two in the back. The one in the front sat on my hip and the two in the back forced my mouth open and poured three mouthfuls of a bitter, thick liquid into my mouth,” said the woman.

She added that the liquid also had a granular texture. They then covered her head with her jersey.

The woman said the men drove around Manors and threw her out the vehicle inside Lahee Park at the first circle.

“I sat there for a couple of minutes as I felt very dizzy, almost drunk but managed to walk back to my office via Bath Road, and arrived there at 1.50pm,” said the woman.

The perpetrators only stole the woman’s phone (LG K10) and R20 cash.

“I believe the perpetrators intended raping me.  I struggling endlessly in the vehicle and recall kicking the back left passenger window,” said the woman.

She claimed Lahee Park was full of party revellers and no one assisted her. The woman added that she could not recall any characteristics of the four men other than that the one sitting on her was about 30 years of age, wore light blue jeans and was clean shaven. She also remembered that the vehicle had leather seats.

“They all spoke Zulu and didn’t seem to be foreigners, they were definitely South Africans,” said the woman.

When the woman went back to Lahee Park with her parents three hours later she found her jersey. She opened a case of kidnapping, assault and theft at the Pinetown SAPS. The investigating officer visited her on Monday to take a statement.
