Man keeps girlfriend hostage

by Linekela Halwoodi


When Elvis Blaauw and his estranged girlfriend had a fall-out on the 2nd of this month, he locked her up in their Grysblock home along Steenbras Street and raped her.
Although the court record does not say whether the two were staying together, it, however, says Blaauw spray-painted his ex-girlfriend’s stuff in the house.
Blaauw, the records say, also threatened one woman who wanted to intervene and save his ex-girlfriend.
The police eventually came to the woman’s rescue and Blaauw was arrested.
He is now facing four charges of rape, malicious damage to property, kidnapping and assault by threat.
Blaauw who is still in custody at the Wanaheda Police Station made his first appearance in Katutura Magistrate Court last week.
A bail application has, however, not been made yet.
He is supposed to appear again on the 5th of next month while the case is still being investigated.
