A police detective,  Captain Andre Beetge has advised individuals to be mindful when using social media for dating purposes.

“Be very suspicious when someone says they will send another person to fetch you. It doesn’t matter how intelligent he sounds, that is a clear warning sign something is wrong,”

Beetge said this today following the event that occurred on Friday at the Motherwell and Kwazakhele areas of Port Elizabeth.

An Unnamed  35 year old man has been arrested based on the countless number of rape incident experienced in area. He was purportedly linked with a 25 year Old lady through Facebook.

“It seems like they put up a fake profile picture of someone who is desirable, maybe a businessman. On the day he wants to meet them, he has an excuse and tells the woman he will send someone else to collect her like an uncle or brother,” said Beetge.

“He took her to his home in Kwazakhele where he raped her late at night.”

A related case as these was also reported. When a lady of 27 was raped in a bush at NU 29, Motherwell.

Beetge said “She also met a guy and he said he was going to send his uncle to fetch her.

“The supposed uncle, which was him, picked her up and took her to the bushes. He allegedly held her by knife point, raped her and left her in the bushes,”

The police still sorts for trail on how these two event could be linked together.
