Uber commuter raped and robbed near Montecasino Johannesburg
A lady was kidnapped and assaulted in the wake of boarding what is believed was a Uber taxi in the Fourways are, Gauteng police said on Friday.
Captain Mavela Masondo stated that a case of kidnapping, rape, and robbery had already been filed in that regard but that he said he couldn’t reveal any additional information.
Samantha Allenberg, a representative of Uber, condemned the act as a despicable act and has already contacted the victim and her family. As news spread of a Uber commuter kidnapped, it as not immediately clear whether the perpetrators of this heinous act were acting on behalf of Uber.
Information from a Facebook post said that the lady got into a vehicle supposing it to be a Uber outside Montecasino a week ago. Two men were purportedly lying down at the back of the car.
She was fastened, locked inside the trunk, and then driven to an A.T.M over an hour away. At that point, she was ambushed and compelled to draw money and then taken to a veld and raped.
The Facebook post cautioned Uber commuters to ensure the car’s license and plate number corresponds to the one sent to their telephone.
