Durban - Eastern Cape police have arrested a man for the alleged rape of a 5-year-old boy in Willowvale on Friday last week.

Police spokesperson Captain Jackson Manatha said that police were called in after the boy’s father noticed strange behaviour.

"The father of the victim noticed something wrong with his son. He asked him what was wrong and the boy told of how he was raped in one of the shacks at the informal settlement," he said.

"Police acted swiftly on Saturday, led by the victim to the shack where he was raped. The suspect was found at his shack and he was arrested. He will appear before the Willowvale Magistrate Court on Monday," Manatha added.
