Man arrested for raping handicapped boy

2012-05-22 11:24

Johannesburg - A man was arrested in Soweto on Tuesday for allegedly raping a 12-year-old mentally handicapped boy, police said.

The child was raped on May 15 when he was apparently lured to the man's backyard room in Zola, with the promise of R7, police spokesperson Kay Makhubela said.

"The boy was walking to the Philip Kushlik Special School near Baragwaneth Hospital and was near Zola Clinic when the man stopped him and said he could help him get to school," said Makhubela.

Philip Kushlik Special School is for children with cerebral palsy and epilepsy.

The boy, who lives in Snake Park with his parents, accompanied the 43-year-old man who took him to the backyard room where he was raped. The man then gave him R7.

Makhubela said the boy's parents took him to the police station when he told them what happened to him.

The alleged rapist disappeared but eventually returned to his room where Jabulani police arrested him at 03:00 on Tuesday.

The man will appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court in Soweto on Wednesday.

      We have some sick minded people in this country... Get rid of them all!!!

      Peter - 2012-05-22 11:42

      You know what the sickest and sadist part of this is? People are too busy with a painting to be concerned with the real issues

      Frank - 2012-05-22 12:09

      And we are told to accept that all people are equal? This piece of trash is equal to some bacteria strain that should be burned before it has the chance to spread!

    Ok first off Snake Park is very far from Bara Hospital, you have to take two taxis to get there, the fact that this 12yr old has to walk to his school is just absurd (unless the journalist is exaggerating) and this sick bastard should be castrated I don't understand why the government isn't spending it's "free" time tackling such issues instead of wasting it on paintings

      Lebogang, many children walk miles to school everyday. There is no reason for a journalist to exaggerate the truth.

      andrew, i want to hear what comes out your mouth the next time you land in a cell and there are 11-20 BLACK MEN in it. Its people like you that are the cause of the humiliation and suffering WHITE men suffer when they land in jails. Crimes are commited everywhere, we have white people who are fathering kids with their daughters, same goes for some black people. In ever race there is people with criminal intentions, some are caught , some get away with it. If it was a black thing for men to rape sick boys, i am sure the parent wouldnt have pressed charges. You make me sick to the stomach.

  • henningvw - 2012-05-22 11:52

    Sickening... They must get a special place in prison for these type of criminals.

  • Jaco - 2012-05-22 12:01

    First of all you are a sick b@st@ard secondly - How f*cking stupid can you be, returning to the scene of the crime thinking that it will blow over.

  • Ryno - 2012-05-22 12:07

  • Phepishi - 2012-05-22 13:19

      I can't understand why race have to be drawn into this. Don't we have enough intolerance already?.

      blackjew69 - 2012-05-22 14:55

      that jacqui evades me too. EVERY listing or story that comes up, its doesnt take more than 5 listings before someone, both blacks and white forget what the essence of the story is, and they start making rude, derrogative comments of the race of the purpetrator. from there on its no longer the crime committed but the race of the person who committed it. In mnyangmar - the asians are killing their own, in nigerian, the blacks are killing each other, in poland there was mass genocide, in germany hilter killed jews(white), are those crimes ok, just because it doesnt affect the other race, and that they were commited against their own race??

  • Tshephang - 2012-05-22 13:26

    Why can't rapist get penis enlargements, large enough for them to stick it in theirs ass instead of raping

  • bmaestro - 2012-05-22 13:32

    devilish sickening disgusting inhumane.

  • Ngwana - 2012-05-22 14:18

    SOWETO again!!!

  • Jacqui - 2012-05-22 14:22

    Another sick story and in Pretoria they are in court because of a painting not to their liking. Obviously such a case is far more important than a decent police force that can safeguard the lives of all the citizens in this country.
