The police obtained photographic material of the suspected kidnapper of teacher Jayde Panayiotou – they believe they have photographs from a cashpoint
where the teacher’s kidnapper withdrew cash in KwaNobuhle from her bank-account.
Ms Panyiotou was kidnapped Tuesdaymorning from in front of her home on Deacon Road just behind Makro in Kabegapark. A woman in the street told police she saw three’suspicious men’ hang around at the same time.
Her sister Toni Inggs said Jayde waited there every morning for her ride to Uitenhage.
Shortly before 06h30 Jayde still spoke to a fellow-teacher on her cellphone yet just minutes later when the car drew up she was not there.
One of the members of the carshare-club phoned Jayde’s husband Christopher, asking him where she was and he said she must still be standing outside,
waiting. However her cellphone was turned off and no further contact could be made with her. Shortly thereafter R1,700 cash was
withdrawn from her account from a cashpoint in KwaNobuhle, said w/o Alwin Labans.
Her kidnapping spread like wildfire on social media and the alert was shared more than 1,000 times on Facebook – but by noon there still was no
sign of her and police officers investigated further at the KwaNobuhle cashpoint, a small Nedbank in crowded Matanzima Street.
The police confiscated the bank’s photographs of customers who withdrew cash and it showed the face of the man who got money from the teacher’s account.
The police searched all afternoon without any luck. However a woman from Deacon Road did tell the police that they saw
three ‘suspicious men’ in the street that morning.
By late afternoon the sister, Ms Inggs, felt very discouraged and said no new leads were found and her phone is still off.
Head mistress Marilyn Woods said Jayde’s disappearing is hartbreaking. They shared the news during the last class-period with the senior pupils.
“Most got tears in their eyes when I asked them to pray for her safe return”.
“However it was the teachers who had the greatest trouble with the news.’
She was last seen wearing a grey jacket, black trousers and black boots.

Survived: Afrikaans primary school girl grabbed in girls toilets at Dr Havinga school Roodepoort and nearly strangled to death

An Afrikaans primary-schoolgirl was grabbed in the Dr Havinga Laerskool in Roodepoort, shoved to the floor and strangled by an adult white man. (From the picture taken during his arrest, the man was white).

The details of the trial are not made available because the victim is a minor. The girl nearly died and was unconscious when she was found.

She was not sexually assaulted and the motive for the attack remains unknown. There was nothing robbed.

Journalist Mathilde Myburgh reports in the Roodepoort Record:

“Mother speaks out: “Her daughter was allegedly grabbed in the school’s bathroom, shoved to the floor and strangled by an adult man before she lost consciousness.

The mother of the girl that was assaulted at Laerskool Dr Havinga in middle March decided to tell the Record her version of things in a letter on condition of anonymity. A 26-year-old man was arrested in connection with the girl’s assault on 22 April in Lindhaven. Details of the Roodepoort Magistrate Court’s case have not been made available.

What follows is her letter (translated from Afrikaans):
“I am the mother of the girl that was assaulted at Laerskool Dr Havinga. I don’t want our names or faces published because I need to protect my daughter. So many stories, both true and untrue versions are doing the rounds and that is why I decided to react on your coverage of events.

“Our daughter was innocently sitting in front of a classroom and waiting for us after school that day. There were sport activities at the school which meant that other children and a multitude of teachers were around. Her attacker approached her under the false pretence that his daughter’s school bag was left behind in the girl’s bathroom.

He asked my daughter to please check the bathroom for him and retrieve the bag if it was there. She agreed and he followed her into the bathroom. She was grabbed from behind. She started screaming. He pushed her to the ground and started strangling her.
She lost consciousness. The attacker fled.

“We believe it to be a miracle that she isn’t dead, wasn’t kidnapped and not sexually abused.

Nobody came to her rescue or heard her screams. Psalm 91 rings true, because in her desperation it was God that protected her.

She was very traumatised and had bruises and scratches all over her little neck. Her eyes were raw and red and bloodshot for two weeks after the attack. Although she is healthy now, I’m sure it is an experience that will be with her for a lifetime.

“We want to thank the community for their help, support and prayers after the attack. I don’t hold a grudge against the attacker.

Judgement is by God alone, it is not my place to judge him. We also want to thank Mr Visser [school principal] as well as the staff and school governing body (SGB) of Laerskool Dr Havinga, who deserves praise for their outstanding help and care.

We appreciate the teacher’s attentiveness that led to the arrest of the suspect.”

Murder: xenophobic: Nicolene Schreuder, 35, shot through the head in front of colleagues, stalker ex-fiancée Dawid Connoway 39 arrested

7 April 2015: Murder (xenophobic, not greed-related) Dawid Connoway (39), the man who was seen by co-workers shooting his his ex-fiancé Niocolene Schreuder 35 through her head at her workplace in Moreletapark, was arrested on 28 April 2015 at his parents’ farm. Warrant officer Dave Miller for the Garsfontein police, said he had been hiding on his parents’ farm near Bronkhorstspruit.
( The murder did not seem to be linked to any greed-related crimes: nothing was robbed, it’s not known if he had taken out any insurance policies on his fiancée as yet.)
“His parents had been arrested for defeating the ends of justice,” Miller said. Connoway had allegedly shot Nicolene Schreuder, 35 in her head at Cura Health Insurance, were she had been working as a personal assistant for the past eight months. Connoway and Nicolene Schreuder (35) had been staying together in Bronkhorstspruit, but she had ended the relationship around two weeks ago after he became possessive, abusive and accused her of “having relationships with other men”. She was in the process of getting a protection order against him as she was scared of him.
On 7 April he posted a photo on his Facebook page of him and a blonde woman sitting closely together in a bar. It had been reported that Connoway, who had his own electrical business, had greeted her with a kiss before he shot her in the head. He then fled on his green scrambler motorbike to a bar where he allegedly drank a couple of drink before he went into hiding on his parents’ farm.
Miller said: “He was under the influence of alcohol when we arrested him. We also found four licenced and one unlicensed weapon on the farm.”
Connoway will be charged with murder and the possession of an illegal firearm. He will appear in the Pretoria Magistrate Court on Monday.
