Willowvale residents nab rape suspect

2012-04-25 16:17

Johannesburg - Willowvale, Eastern Cape residents have arrested a man who allegedly raped a 9-year-old girl, police said on Wednesday.

"The community did not assault the suspect as [he] did not fight when he was arrested," Captain Jackson Manatha said.

The girl was home alone on Tuesday when the man entered at 15:30 and allegedly raped her. Residents heard her screams, chased him and caught him.

"Police were called and they rushed to the scene, where the community handed over the suspect to the police," said Manatha.

The man was expected to appear in the Willowvale Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

    Well done to the community for not engaging in mob justice. Dirty b*****d, hope you get some of your own medicine in jail.

    Nine years old - my heart is crying for this unspeakable act. The truly frightening thing is that we are exposed through the media to but a fraction of rapes that occur here every day. I cry for those too.

      The truely frightening thing is that nothing will come of this in court.

    That gives one hope, a community that fights crime yet respects the law instead of resorting to jungle justice.

    Why was he handed over to the Police? Another escape, another insufficient evidence, minimum bail, another sleeping Magistrate. The locals should have 'meted out' their own justice....
