The South African Police Services (SAPS) family violence, child protection, and sexual offences (FCS) unit in the Western Cape are working to locate a two-month-old baby boy, Kwahlelo Tiwane, who was abducted in Parow on Thursday, January 16.
SAPS is urging the public to come forward with any information on the infant’s whereabouts and to help locate him.
According to IOL, Colonel Andrè Traut said that a mother of twin boys was approached on Wednesday, January 15 by a woman posing as a social worker. The suspect approached their home in Khayelitsha.
“She asked for the baby’s birth certificate, clinic card, and she made herself copies. The suspect returned the next day and accompanied the mother and the children in a taxi to Parow, where she told the mother her office was. After stopping at the alleged office, the suspect got out of the vehicle with the one twin and fled with the child,” said Traut.
Currently the circumstances of the kidnapping are being investigated. If you have any information contact Detective Sergeant Joy Sumsodien of the Bellville FCS on 082-522-1095 or Crime Stop on 086-00-10111.
