CT learner recovering after abduction
This is the third incident in recent months in which learners have been snatched in Cape Town.
CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Education Department says a Grade four learner who was drugged and abducted from his home in Woodstock is safe and sound.
Eyewitness News has obtained a letter about the recent incident which was addressed to the parents of learners at the Mountain Road Primary School in Woodstock.
Apparently the child was taken from his home last week before he later managed to escape from his captors.
The Education Department's Bronagh Casey says, "The learner is now safe and is receiving all the relevant support. The school has issued a letter to all parents and they had a special assembly to address learners about safety."
On Monday, a teenage girl was snatched in Grassy Park before she too managed to escape her captors in the Cape Town CBD.
The girl was on her way to school in Plumstead when the incident took place.
In another incident, a 17-year-old girl was abducted by three men in Grassy Park. She was beaten, raped and dropped off nearby in Zeekoevlei.
