WINDHOEK, 25 MAY (NAMPA) – A 21-year-old woman was allegedly drugged and raped by an unknown taxi driver in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Namibian Police Force (NamPol) spokesperson, Inspector Slogan Matheus told Nampa on Wednesday the woman told police officers she was drugged by the driver, using an unknown method, which made her unconscious before he had sexual intercourse with her.
She said the man later dropped her off at the Katutura Police Station and disappeared.
Matheus said the woman was heavily intoxicated and was violent towards police officers who tried to assist her.
The police contacted family members through information they obtained from the woman. She was then advised to go home and return to open a formal case once sobered.
A formal charge has not yet been laid.
