Johannesburg – A man has been arrested for allegedly kidnapping his five-year-old daughter in Orange Farm, south of Johannesburg, police have said.

He was caught while hiding with the child in the ceiling of a house in Palm Springs, Vereeniging, yesterday afternoon, Lieutenant-colonel Katlego Mogale said.

She said the 35-year-old man had been on the run since Friday when he took the girl from his estranged wife’s home.

“The dad took the child and promised to bring her back to her mother after a few hours, but he never did,” Mogale said. “The woman opened a kidnapping case after her estranged husband failed to return their daughter at the agreed time.”

He was expected to face a kidnapping charge soon in the Vereeniging Magistrates Court.
