Teens rape woman during armed robbery

Two youthful Maun men have been found guilty of raping a woman during an armed robbery at her home in Thito ward four years ago.

The duo, Leatile Setlhare and Michael Jepuira Kandu, were aged 17 and 19 when they attacked a young woman at around 2:00am on Sunday, 3 December 2017.

It is said the woman parked her car next to her house but as soon as she got out the two thugs pounced, grabbing her and snatching her Samsung J5 phone (valued at P2, 500) before running away.

As the woman ran for the safety of home, the two boys quickly returned, forcing entry and holding the terrified woman prisoner at knife-point. They then tied her up with a shoelace, dragged her to the bedroom and demanded money, of which she gave them P750.

After collecting the cash, the duo took turns raping her before finally ordering her to take a bath.

The matter was reported to the police and the victim was taken to the hospital for medical screening.

According to Prosecutor Inspector Basupi, the victim was able to positively identify her assailants since the lights were on throughout her ordeal.

The two, who were out on bail prior to Tuesday’s guilty verdict, have now been remanded in custody pending sentence and presentation of previous convictions before Maun Magistrates Court.
