Reading Time: 2 minutes

Gauteng police are searching for two women who snatched an eight-month old baby girl from her mother in Magaliesburg outside Pretoria on Monday.

It’s alleged that the two women went to the baby’s place of residence in Ga-Mogale and informed the mother that they are from the father’s family and wanted to buy clothes for the baby.

The mother went with the women to town where one of them asked to hold the baby, while the mother was given money to go inside the shop and buy food.

When she came out of the shop, she found the two women had disappeared with the baby.

Police Spokesperson Mavela Masondo says: “The suspects who might be in their mid-20s speaking Setswana were wearing blue jeans and black slipper boots, and the other one was in a blue sweater. The suspects are both light in complexion. Police are appealing to anyone who might have information that can help in the search or assist in locating the two women snatchers to please call Captain Alex Mafunghu on 082 822 8270.”
