She said that she has reason to believe that her abductors were targeting students specifically. She said that she has heard of another abduction of two girls in Pretoria central by men in a taxi that fits the same description as the one she boarded.
The cancellation of the UP’s bus service to Sunnyside and Arcadia has forced many students to walk home or take taxis late at night. Students feel most at risk between Hill and Eastwood Streets, which has become a crime hotspot.
The victim has reported the matter to the Brooklyn Police Station but she was not accompanied by the other two victims. The police told her that she could only open a case if the other two victims report the case with her.
