Cops arrest man for raping girl
Johannesburg - A man has been arrested for raping a 7-year-old girl in Soweto, police said on Wednesday.
The 33-year-old man was arrested in Doornkop on Tuesday night, said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela.
He said the man raped the girl in his shack. When she got home, she told her mother who went to the police.
A second man, also aged 33, was arrested in Dobsonville on Tuesday for trying to rape a 14-year-old girl, Makhubela said.
"The man had allegedly called the girl to his home to send her to a tuck shop, but when she returned he grabbed and forced her into the house and undressed her," he said.
"When he was busy undressing himself, the girl kicked him on his private parts and managed to run away and went straight to the police station."
Police found the man still in the house and arrested him.
Both men would appear in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court on Thursday.
