Rustenburg - Two men, aged 51 and 61, have been arrested in Koster for allegedly raping a 10-year-old girl, North West police said on Sunday.

"The incident happened between 3 and 20 June 2014, at Senthumule, Koster," said Colonel Sabata Mokgwabone.

He said both men were related to the girl and they stayed at the same place. They were the victim's uncle and grandfather respectively.

"The child’s guardian became concerned when she realised that the child was not walking properly. The child was taken to the hospital where it was discovered that she was raped."

The child informed the guardian that she had been raped by her two relatives.

They were arrested on Saturday and were expected to appear in the Koster Magistrate's Court on Monday, Mokgwabone said.
