A 22-year-old man has been jailed for five-years for a statutory rape by the Empangeni Regional Court, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Thursday.

The man was sentenced on Wednesday for raping his 14-year-old girlfriend in Ngwelezane area, said Captain Thulani Zwane.

The incident happened in February when the teenager was sent to the garage and she was delayed by the man on her way back.

She came home late and her angry father ordered her to return where she came from, said Zwane.

"She went back to her boyfriend and they were involved in sexual activities."

Her mother opened a rape case the following day and the man was arrested.
