The police have been at the scene since this morning, trying to negotiate with the suspect to release the victim.

“The suspect who’s 37-years-old is demanding that a case that was opened against him be dropped and only then will he release the woman.

“We have been here since 7 am with both the victim and suspects’ parents, but the suspect won’t budge, despite our efforts,” said Mbulayeni Netshivhodza of SAPS.

According to Netshivhodza, the victim had opened a case of assault with grievous bodily harm and damage to property.

“The problem is that the victim opened a case and the boyfriend wants the charges against him dropped,” said Netshivhodza.
