A 35-year-old man who allegedly raped a four-year-old boy was arrested in Keiskammahoek, Eastern Cape.

The boy had been playing with a group of friends at the Ntwaku village and his mother got worried when he did not return home by 6pm yesterday, said Warrant Officer Bradley Rowlinson.

The woman then began searching for her son and one of the villagers told her she had seen the boy entering a house in the same area.

When the woman went to the house she allegedly found a man raping her child and reported the matter to police.
The man was arrested and charged with rape.
