HILLCREST – The woman arrested for the abduction of the new born in Phoenix hospital recently, has been charged with a second case of child abduction after a five-year-old boy was found at her house during an investigation conducted by the Durban FCF detectives, earlier this week.
The suspected posed as a concern friend helping the new mother with her new born baby, escorting them to the taxi rank and after sending the mother to buy airtime, the suspect fled with the baby. Durban Central SAPS had arrested a 33-year-old female suspect at Kwanyusa in Hillcrest in connection with the abduction, reunited the mother and baby and detained the suspect.
It is reported that the suspect will today reappear in court, after another five-year-old boy was found at the suspect’s house during an investigation conducted by the Durban Central FCF detectives. During questioning the suspect was unable to explain how she came in to contact with the child.
The child has been taken to a place of safety for further investigation; while the suspect is due to appear in the Durban Magistrate court today for bail application. DNA tests will be conducted to establish the child’s biological mother.
It is alleged that the child was stolen five years ago.
Captain Khepu Ndlovu, spokesperson for the Durban Central SAPS, said: “Today the suspect will stand before a judge and more charges will be added to the previous child stealing charge.”
Station commander Brig Vernon Stokes commended the brilliant work of Detective Sgt Dube, from the Durban Central FCF for first reuniting the new born with her mother and now finding the five year old boy. Anyone with information regarding the case is requested to come forward to the Durban Central SAPS.
