The popular Red Alert Electronic Security EC FB page this week shared news of the loss of one of their own following a senseless act of violence.
Angelique Clark-Abrahams, 25, died on Tuesday morning after being horrifically attacked in her East London home, allegedly by a man known to her.
Close friend Marion Pretorius-Peake said Clark-Abrahams had obtained a protection order on Monday.
Police spokesperson Captain Hazel Mqala said a suspect, whose identity is known to DispatchLIVE , was arrested and appeared in court on charges of rape and assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm. He is still in custody. She confirmed a protection order was issued against him.
Clark-Abrahams’s mother, Maria Clark, said Clark-Abrahams had been in hospital since Thursday. She died at Cecilia Makiwane Hospital.
Angelique put up a brave fight for her life but finally succumbed to her injuries this week. As part of the close-knit Red Alert Head Office team, Angelique’s presence will be sorely missed in the control room.
We offer our sincere condolences to her family and colleagues at this very difficult time.
