2010-12-14 20:36

Bloemfontein - The stepfather of a 14-year-old girl from Meloding near Virginia has been arrested for allegedly raping the girl over a period of time.

The man allegedly started showing the girl pornographic movies, Free State police spokesperson Constable Martin Xuma said on Tuesday.

"As time went by the stepfather allegedly raped the victim a couple of times until she reported the matter to her 22-year-old stepsister, who then told the victim's mother."

Xuma said the mother apparently did not report the abuse to the police until the stepsister went to the local police station and reported the matter.

A case of rape was opened and the man was arrested on the same day.

Xuma said the man appeared in the Virginia Magistrate's Court. He would remain in custody until his next appearance.

Police also opened a case against the mother for failing to report a sexual offence against a child.

    that woman is sick. The older sister did a good thing by reporting that to the police. As for the mother...., That man should just rot in jail and meet up with the papas.

    She doesn't deserve to be called a 'mother' - a mothers job is to protect their child - I hope they lock her up for the injustice to her daughter. Well done to the older sister for informing the police. To the step-father - I hope your penis falls off & when you're locked up with sex-starved inmates, sleep with one eye open!!

    I'm so sick of hearing news reports about rape.. Does the men of South Africa have absolutely no respect for us women ?? What the **** is wrong with you guys ? Men are so suppose to protect us and make us feel safe! Take note I'm not attacking all the men, just the ones that feel that it is ok to force yourself on somebody. It's SICK!

    Women stop securing your marriage at the expence of the innocent daughters. When you married your monster the child was never part of the bargain. Your child must come first. not the otherway round. The bastard you are bending over backwards to please is an an obvious ingrate a nonentity, who only takes you for a moron that you are , selling the soul of your child to the devil, just like that? You are not fit to be called a mother, please go and find the real defination.
