Johannesburg - A five-year-old girl was raped in Flagstaff, allegedly by her uncle who was supposed to look after her, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.

Captain Mdududzi Godlwana said the rape occurred at around 20:00 at Sphaqeni village on Sunday.

"When the mother returned and asked the uncle where the child was, he didn't respond.

"The mother searched for the child and found her under the bed bleeding from the lower body."

Police were called and the man was arrested and charged with rape.

He was expected to appear in the Flagstaff Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
