More victims testify in 'Sunday Rapist' case
Three alleged victims testified in the ‘Sunday Rapist’ trial in the Palm Ridge Magistrates’ Court.
JOHANNESBURG - Three more victims have testified in the so-called 'Sunday Rapist' trial in the Palm Ridge Magistrates' Court on Tuesday.
Johannes Steyn faces 37 charges, including 11 counts of rape and two of murder.
On Tuesday, a 14-year-old Potchefstroom girl, who was 12 at the time of the incident, tearfully described how she was kidnapped back in 2009.
She said she was driven to an isolated location and sexually assaulted.
Another alleged victim, who was 16 when she was attacked in Vanderbijlpark, broke down several times as she told the court how she was abducted, sexually assaulted and raped.
Her mother told the magistrate that her daughter still has nightmares.
Earlier on Tuesday, a 20-year-old Potchefstroom woman also recounted how a man wearing a disguise, tried to kidnap back in 2010.
She fought back and he eventually drove away.
Steyn pleaded not guilty to all 37 charges against him, despite confessing to some crimes when he was arrested.
Last week, the court heard how Florida police officers responded to the kidnapping and murder of Roodepoort teenager Louise de Waal.
The officers also explained how they were led to Steyn's house.
This followed a tip-off from someone who recognised him from an identikit.
At Steyn's house, authorities recovered de Waal's schoolbag and textbooks in the back of his bakkie.
