13-Year-Old Kidnap Victim Freed in Verulam - KZN

A 13-year-old female who was allegedly kidnapped by three (3) men in Stanger north of Durban yesterday (Saturday) was set free by her captors in Verulam today (Sunday).

Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) received a call from a resident of Trenance Park in Verulam at approximately 18:55 requesting assistance after the teenager arrived at their home. On arrival she informed Reaction Officers that that she resides in

Stanger and was on her way to a local tuck shop yesterday when she was abducted by three men driving a white BMW.

The visibly shaken girl went on to explain that she was driven to an unknown property several kilometers from where she was kidnapped and locked in a room. During the course of the night she overheard the men discussing that they were going to sell her.

This evening she was forced back into the car and while driving the suspects noticed a Police vehicle and were afraid that they may be pulled over. They stopped their vehicle and released the victim on Inanda Road. She then fled to a nearby residence where she sought assistance. 

The girl confirmed that she lived with her grandmother after her parents passed on. She could not provide any contact numbers for her family or an address where she lived. She was assessed by Rusa Paramedics on scene and did not appear to have sustained any injuries. 

Attempts to locate her family are currently underway.
