THE Namibian Police from Ondangwa is looking for a young man who has been accused of raping an 18-year-old girl at the Onguta Village on Saturday morning.
Confirming the incident, spokesperson for the police in the Oshana Region, Thomas Aiyambo, said a case of rape was registered at Ondangwa shortly after the incident.
According to Aiyambo, the suspect allegedly entered the victim’s bedroom during the early hours of Saturday after she had told him not to because he had too much alcohol to drink.
“The suspect, however, managed to overpower the victim during an argument that ensued and he had sexual intercourse with her against her will,” he said.
According to Aiyambo, the suspect and the victim are friends and added that the investigation is still at an early stage. He said that the suspect will be arrested when the investigation into the matter has been completed.
