Johannesburg - A man arrested in connection with the rape of a 6-year-old girl will appear in the Rustenburg Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, North West police said.

The 22-year-old man was arrested at Thlabane, near Rustenburg, on Sunday night, Captain Pelonomi Makau said in a statement on Tuesday.

The man asked the child and her 8-year-old friend to walk with him to a shop, where he promised to buy them sweets.

Makau said the man allegedly undressed and tried to rape the older girl, but she escaped.

The 6-year-old was then raped.

    Hand him to the community for sentancing. This is not accident were he 'tripped' and accidently raped an innocent child. It was planned in advance. He will do this again after parole and therefore has given up his right as a human being. We have no need for him wasting our food. Send him to hell.
