A 23 year old woman from Nomzama in Strand will appear in the local magistrate’s court today. The woman was arrested in connection with the abduction of a 5 month old baby.
Leabona Guvana was taken to a Somerset West hospital by her mother, after she fell ill. Police say a woman claiming to be a relative of the baby’s mother took the baby yesterday morning. She told one of the patients that she was from Khayelitsha. Police Inspector Bernadine Steyn says police managed to track her down and the child was found unharmed.
“Yesterday afternoon at about 15h20 police arrested a 23 year old female at her house in Nonzamo, Strand for abduction. The baby girl was found unharmed and reunited with her mother. The suspect will appear in the Somerset West Magistrate's court soon,” said SAPS Inspector Bernadine Steyn.
