Pretoria Central police spokesperson Captain Augustinah Selepe said the woman's mother said her child had been kidnapped by her boyfriend and subsequently assaulted. "She will be laying charges against the boyfriend," Selepe said.
Police had launched an intensive search for Boitumelo Marisane, 25, who was last seen going to work at 4.45am last Monday.
Marisane live with her mother and sister on Francis Baard Street in the CBD and works at the SA Brewery in Rosslyn.
She normally leaves the family’s apartment at 4.45am alone when she works the early morning shift and goes to work via taxi. She was wearing jeans, a black T-shirt and blue work overalls when she left her home that morning.
