Teen held for false rape claim

It appears we have a second false rape claim out of Attridgeville. Why? To cover up the fact that she ran away from home to visit her boyfriend.

18 year old lies about being raped

An 18-year-old matriculant who ran away from home to visit her boyfriend was arrested on Monday for allegedly lying about being raped, Pretoria police said.

"This learner is reported to have left her home on August 10 and only returned 12 days later. Her parents reported her as missing a day after she disappeared," Inspector Daniel Mavimbela said.

When she returned home the woman opened a case at the Atteridgeville police station claiming that six men had abducted her, taken her to Rustenburg and repeatedly raped her.

It later emerged that the woman had gone to visit her 25-year-old boyfriend in Mamelodi.

"She was taken to a doctor for treatment at the expense of the state and penetration was confirmed."

According to police she had consensual sex with her boyfriend during her stay at his house.

She would face a charge of perjury in the Atteridgeville Magistrate's Court on Tuesday. - Sapa
