Welkom: pupil held for having sex with ‘drunk’ teen

2013-03-07 00:00

WELKOM — A matric pupil at a well-known secondary school in Welkom has been taken into custody after he had sex with his girlfriend in a park. The act was filmed by his friends on their cellphones.

His friends’ loud yells of encouragement alerted a neighbour, who looked over the fence and saw the pupils in action. A taxi driver also stopped.

The two grown men then pulled the teenage boy off the girl, after which she reportedly threatened in her drunken state that she would report them to the police for interrupting their sex.

She then left with her boyfriend.

Her underwear was found hours later in the park by police and her parents. After the girl sobered up, she remembered nothing of the incident.

Blood samples were taken from her to determine to what extend she was under the influence of alcohol.

The teenage boy is being charged with rape because if the girl was drunk, she was incapable of giving permission to sex, although they are both older than 16.

Her parents said they had been searching for the girl all afternoon when she did not arrive home.

She was only found at 6 pm at a friend’s house.

Her parents realised something was wrong and called the police.

The police, meanwhile, were trying to locate the boys who took photos and videos of the sex in the park scene.

The police say some of the footage has already been distributed among pupils at the school, which was a very serious transgression.

Volksblad learned that the police know who the boys are.

Warrant officer Fanie van der Merwe, investigating officer of sexual crimes and family violence, said that he guessed the boys would confess and make things easier.

He invited the boys, or their parents, to call him, and warned that anyone who knows about a crime and keeps quiet, was also considered to be guilty of that crime.

The teenager who has been charged with rape will remain in custody until tomorrow when he can apply for bail.
