A man drove over and killed a teenage girl after kidnapping her and her friend and raping one of them, Pretoria police said on Tuesday.

“There will be a manhunt today (Tuesday),” said Captain Dumisani Ndlazi.

The two girls, aged 14 and 16, were walking along the road in Elandspoort on Sunday morning when a man in a bakkie stopped next to them and forced them into his vehicle.

“He went to Hennops River where one of them, the 16-year-old, was raped. After that he drove to Kwaggasrand where the 14-year-old girl was pushed out of the car and he drove over her,” said Ndlazi.

The man dropped the 16-year-old girl off after the ordeal.

“We don’t know exactly where she was dropped off... we are still investigating. We don’t know exactly what happened and why one was killed and the other dropped off.”

Ndlazi said the man had blue eyes and was in his late 20s. - Sapa
