WINDHOEK, 30 MAR (NAMPA) - A 19-year-old girl was allegedly raped at Rehoboth's Block E on Saturday.
Namibian Police Force (NamPol) spokesperson Inspector Stephen Nuuyi said at the weekly crime briefing in the capital on Sunday the incident occurred at around 06h45.
The suspect fled after the victim screamed for help and was still on the run by Sunday afternoon.
Police investigations into the matter continue.
Meanwhile at Keetmanshoop, a girl of the same age was allegedly assaulted and raped by a suspect at the Tseiblaagte residential area last Thursday at around 22h00.
The two suspects in the matter allegedly took the girl behind the J. Stephanus Stadium, pretending they were looking for someone. She was rescued by a passerby after allegedly being raped by one of the suspects.
Both suspects were arrested and police investigations continue.
Nuuyi also reported that the 16-year-old Hendrick Ouchurub was stabbed and wounded in the head and chest with an unknown object at Schlip in the Hardap Region on Saturday.
The incident occurred just before 02h00.
Ouchurub was rushed to the St. Mary’s Hospital in Rehoboth and the suspect has been arrested.
In Windhoek, the 26-year-old Kativa Tjongora was wounded in a shooting incident at a bar at around 02h00 on Sunday.
Nuuyi said there was an argument outside the bar in the Goreangab dam informal settlement in Katutura. According to eye witnesses, shots were fired and one of the bullets hit Tjongora, who had been playing pool inside the bar, in the back.
A suspect has been arrested in connection with the matter.
In an unrelated case, a 26-year-old man was shot in an incident at a bar in Okuryangava's Onheleiwa Street.
Nuuyi said a friend of Andreas Tobias had been involved in a fight with another man at the bar. The other man apparently ran away and returned with two other men armed with pistols. The man then started throwing stones at people in the bar and when they tried to stop him, his friends started shooting at them, injuring Tobias in the process.
No suspects have been arrested so far.
