An Eastern Cape man has been arrested for allegedly repeatedly raping his step-daughter.

Lieutenant-Colonel Priscilla Naidu said the 55-year-old man was arrested last night after the 12-year-old girl complained to her biological father.

Naidu said the most recent alleged incident happened on Friday when the man entered the girl’s bedroom while she was undressing.

He helped her take off her clothes, then raped her on the bed. He then threatened to harm her if she told her mother.

The next day, the girl told her biological father, who went to the police.

Naidu said the child had since been placed in the custody of her father.
