Limpopo Police confirm an arrest of a 14 years old teenager who filed a false kidnapping case in Tzaneen.
Police say that the teenager informed the Police that she and her friend, a learner at Meridian College in Tzaneen, were walking from school when unknown suspects driving in a white panel van grabbed her friend and forced her inside the vehicle.
“The matter was prioritised and duly treated with urgency only to establish that the case was based on a fabricated story. Preliminary investigations revealed that there was never a kidnapping and she was not even with a friend” said Lieutenant Colonel Mamphaswa Seabi.
She was arrested on a charge of Perjury this past weekend.
Her arrest was included among 1 574 suspects who were arrested for various offenses during joint operations conducted across the province since the past week until Monday, 28 September.
