2013-11-13 16:45

A 40-year-old man has been arrested in Kuruman, Northern Cape, for raping a two-year-old girl.

Lieutenant Olebogeng Tawana said the man was arrested last night after the girl’s mother had identified him.

Tawana said the girl was playing outside her home on Saturday afternoon.

After a while, the woman realised her daughter was missing and went to look for her at the man’s shack.

“While asking the suspect about the child’s whereabouts, she saw her daughter emerge from the bedroom with her underwear pulled down,” Tawana said.

“The mother became suspicious and after consulting an older woman in the community, a case of rape was opened on Monday.”

The man will appear in the Kuruman Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
