Serial rapist targeted young boys

2012-05-03 10:31

Cape Town - Police in Gansbaai have arrested a serial rapist who is believed to have raped a number of young boys.

The Daily Voice reported that the man lured young boys of between 7 and 12 years old to his shack in Gansbaai, showing them pornographic videos before raping them.

The accused is 29 and from Masakhane.

It is not yet clear how many boys had been raped.

The man allegedly said he would kill them if they spoke about the rape.

He offered them sweets and treats to eat and then expected them to “repay” him with sex. He held his hand over the boy’s mouth to keep him from screaming, reported one of the boys.

The man’s arrest followed after one of his victims soiled himself at school and then told his mother of the rape.

A police investigation was now under way.

A number of children and parents had come forward to report incidents involving the suspect.

    Totaly disguting. Rape should be a hanging offence. Especialy for pedophiles because they cannot be cured!!!

      Its just one rapist (aka zuma) helping out a bunch of other rapist by not bringing back the death penalty or harsher punishment.

    '...after one of his victims soiled himself at school...' My heart goes out to all these boys. They are now 'damaged' people. I hope that this man is prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    Its frightening how many predators are out there. Is it just me, or is this becoming more pronounced every day? It just seems as if there are more rapes than ever being reported. And the victims are so young! Is there a solution?

      @Sharon - I also sometimes wonder if there are more incidents like this than before or whether it is just that more are being exposed these days.

      If statistics are to be believed, and one person is raped every 17 seconds, then News24 is only scraping the surface. They couldn't possibly report on all of them, they wouldn't be able to keep up!

    Hang him!

    Good Lord!!! Remove people like this from society. Bring back the death penalty, or hand him over to the community. Now that will be justice!

    South Africa, aka, the sickest bunch of people in the world. Believe it, they tread amongst us!

    Please, someone- kill that monster! He won't ever be able to rehabilitate and will probably enjoy being someone's bitch in prison while we pay for his pleasure! Those boys are mentally and most probably physically damaged for life!
