Rustenburg and Brits police have rearrested a most wanted suspect, Hendrick Ndou (28) who escaped with five other inmates from lawful custody on 11 November, 2014.
The police endeavoured to trace the suspect since his date of escape with no success until the escapee was arrested on 28 August, 2015. The accused has appeared on 4 September, 2015, in the Brits Magistrate’s Court for escape. His case was postponed to 30 September, 2015, for further investigation.
However, despite the court appearance of the accused, he is linked to various other crimes, which were committed in Brits and Mmakau Cluster while he was on the run.
The cases which are linked to the accused include three rapes, robbery, car hijacking and kidnapping which occurred in Mmakau Cluster. Also to his judgment are four rapes and robberies that were committed in Brits. Through the diligent work of the SAPS, he was brought to justice.
