A 40-year-old woman was raped brightly overnight at a residential complex in Hartenbos, apparently, while she was hanging laundry.
The incident happened around 10 p.m.
The woman was robbed, forced into her home and then raped. It is not known how the man gained access to the complex.
Police spokeswoman Wollie Fourie said the woman sustained several minor injuries in addition to the rape. “A compilation of the suspect’s face is being drawn up and the investigation is ongoing.”
No one has been arrested yet. The man was apparently wearing denim shorts, a dark blue shirt, cap, and rubber boots.
The residential complex is fenced and there is an entrance gate that is opened with remote control.
This was reported by a local newspaper Mossel Bay Advertiser
