Ipid probes cop who held two women hostage in Soweto
A policeman who allegedly held two women hostage in Soweto is being probed by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid).
The police man is being accused of rape and kidnapping.
On the matter, hostage negotiators had to be called in to defuse the situation earlier this week.
Ipid spokesperson Ndileka Cola said: “It is alleged that the [policeman], his girlfriend and the girlfriend’s friend were together in a tavern.”
“The trio left to go to the police officer’s place.”
It is alleged that the policeman raped his girlfriend’s friend that day.
“The allegation is that a few days later, the three met in the tavern again and later went back to the suspect’s house.
“The two victims were held hostage.”
“The suspect allegedly demanded to know where his girlfriend had been on the day when he allegedly raped the girlfriend’s friend,” Cola said.
“The police, hostage negotiators and the task force were called in to the scene.”
“Through the negotiation process the victims were released and the suspect was arrested on September 22,” Cola added.
The policeman is expected to appear in the Protea magistrate’s court on Friday.
