Later at 5pm on the same day (8 April), a victim of 8th Avenue was forced by her ex-boyfriend into his car and raped overnight at his 3rd Avenue home. The victim was alerted to the suspect’s presence outside her home in his car. When she inquired what he wanted, he threatened and forced her into the vehicle with her child and drove off with them. On arrival at his place, he locked them in the house and told her that he wanted revenge for dumping him. He allegedly raped her and released her in the morning after ordering her to go home and return with her clothes which she didn’t.

The following night on 9 April, an Extension 7 woman, who had locked her place before going to bed, was raped by a known suspect. She was awakened by a noise in the room and when she screamed, the intruder ordered her to be quiet or he would kill her. When she relented, he demanded money he claimed she had for renovating her place. This made her aware that it was the builder who had earlier, given her a quotation for the work. She called him by his name but he didn’t answer and instead, raped her after overpowering and tying her hands with her pyjamas. Afterwards, he tied her legs with a belt and a vest but untied her when he wanted her to open the door for him to leave. She put on the lights and identified him before he left.
