Hawks in South Africa have launched investigations into the “kidnapping” of a 17-year-old Cape Town girl who was allegedly abducted at a spaza shop in Suburban, Delft.

The girl was reportedly abducted from her father’s spaza in unclear circumstances.

On Saturday, Hawks spokesperson Zinzi Hani said investigations have reached a critical stage.

“We can confirm that the Hawks are busy with the investigation. The investigation is at a sensitive stage and no information can be divulged at this stage,” said Hani.

The family owns a tuck shop in Suburban in Delft, which is owned by the teenager’s father. The kidnappers have requested R600,000 ransom for his daughter’s safe return.

Earlier this week, five men, four of whom were black and one a Somali national confronted the father at the shop while he was offloading some goods.

A pistol was head to his head while the men entered the shop and took the adolescent girl out of the shop.

Reports suggest the sums have been paid to the abductors, but the details remain sketchy.

“We can confirm that the Hawks are busy with the investigation. The investigation is at a sensitive stage and no information can be divulged at this current moment.”

Two weeks ago, 8-year-old Abira Dekhta of Rylands was rescued from a shack in Khayelitsha. Abira’s kidnapping was followed by an intense investigation by high-ranking police members who used specialised units and technology to locate Abira, who was unharmed and healthy.
