Man held for attempted rape in Limpopo
Johannesburg - A 27-year-old man was arrested for the alleged attempted rape and indecent assault of a 9-year-old girl in Malamulele on Sunday, Limpopo police said.
The man reportedly lured the girl to an RDP house at New Orleans in Malamulele on Tuesday, Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba said.
He said the man was apparently interrupted by community members while attempting to rape the child.
The 27-year-old had been on the run since and was arrested in the same village after a tip-off from the community.
Ramatseba said he was expected to appear in the Malamulele Magistrate's Court soon.
