The Durban Central Family Violence, Child Protection, and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS) is reaching out to the community in an effort to identify a person involved in a horrifying occurrence. The individual seen in the identity card attached is believed by investigators to possess crucial information that could aid in the resolution of a robbery and rape case.

On Thursday, January 4, 2024, an unidentified assailant broke into a nearby business, sending shockwaves across the Berea neighborhood. A man with a medium build, short stature, and medium complexion—who looked to be in his thirties—was said to have threatened the 34-year-old victim. Additionally, he was observed wielding a screwdriver. After tying her up, the assailant started robbing and assaulting her sexually. He is well-known for the noticeable scar on his right cheek and for being dressed in black slacks and a green T-shirt at the time of the occurrence.

Given the gravity of the crime and the ongoing investigation, the investigating detective, Detective Constable Tshabalala, has issued an appeal to the public. “We urge anyone who may recognize the individual or have information on his whereabouts to come forward,” Detective Constable Tshabalala stated. “Your assistance could be instrumental in securing justice for the victim and ensuring the safety of our community.”

The public is encouraged to report any pertinent information or leads by phoning the Crime Stop hotline at 08600 10111, or to speak directly with Detective Constable Tshabalala at 084 881 7281.

To combat such heinous atrocities, the South African Police Service highlights the importance of community collaboration. To make the environment safer for everyone, the public and law enforcement may collaborate.

This appeal is a part of the ongoing efforts that authorities are making to address the issue of gender-based violence and safeguard society’s most vulnerable members. The FCS Unit remains dedicated to pursuing justice and providing support to survivors of comparable horrific incidents.

As the inquiry progresses, public awareness and collaboration are essential. No matter how insignificant the piece of information appears, it might be essential to apprehending the perpetrator and averting further harm.

Cooperation between law enforcement and the community is necessary for a society to strive toward security and equality. By banding together to combat violent criminals, we can create a society where no one has to live in fear or oppression.

The South African Police Service thanks anyone who come forward with information and restates its commitment to upholding the law and protecting the rights of all residents.
