Rape Obscene

He pointed a firearm at her and instructed her to follow him to an unknown building in Johannesburg.

A 24-year-old man was arrested in the Joburg CBD after being spotted by a woman he had allegedly attacked and raped beginning of this month. The woman alerted the police who quickly arrested him.

"He pointed a firearm at her and instructed her to follow him to an unknown building in the Johannesburg CBD, where he raped her and took R500 from her wallet," said the police spokesperson Xoli Mbele.

The 27-year-old was walking along Noord Taxi Rank on 7 November when the perpetrator approached her. While walking in Joburg CBD yesterday the woman saw her rapist and alerted the police officers patrolling the area immediately. He was arrested on the corner of Bree and Rissik Street and was later charged with rape and armed robbery.

He will appear in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Beware: perpetrators are now targeting women in CBD. Avoid people who want to have a conversation with you if you do not know them, the chances are good that these people are marking you as a victim.
