Johannesburg - The case against a father and son who were in the Welkom Magistrate's Court for forcing an employee and a dog into performing a sexual act has been postponed to 1 April, reports say.

The father and his 16-year-old son appeared in court on Tuesday. Free State police said the Welkom Family Violence and Sexual Offences Unit were now helping with the investigation of the incident, reported Eyewitness News.

"The charges are compelled attempted rape, intimidation, and crimen injura," said Captain Stephen Thakeng.

The son, 16, the dog, and the new employee, 57, were guarding the father's business premises when the son ordered the dog to attack the man.

The son then allegedly removed the man's belt and  forced the employee to perform a sexual act with the dog, said Thakeng.

Photos and a video were allegedly taken of the incident.

When the employee reported the incident to the father, he allegedly threatened to kill the man.

The two appeared in court on 17 March and the father, 47, was released on R2 000 bail.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Cosatu condemned the incident, saying it was "perturbed".
