A woman allegedly kidnapped two children from two different families in White City in Soweto, Gauteng police said on Saturday.

She allegedly kidnapped a four-month-old boy and an 11-month-old boy on Thursday, said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela.

The woman, who is a family friend of the children’s parents, allegedly told the parents that she was taking the children to Roodepoort, on the West Rand.

“The family cannot reach her because her phone is off,” said Makhubela.

Police were investigating.
