A doctor confirmed that the teenager had been sexually assaulted.

A man was arrested in Zondi Soweto on Friday 7th November and appeared at Protea Magistrate Court on Monday the 10th of November on charges of raping a 17 year old mentally ill girl. The man was apprehended after the girl's brother told his parents he was suspicious that his sister was sexually assaulted by the man.

Examinations by a doctor confirmed that the girl had been raped, which led to the man's arrest. Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela who is handling the case said the teenager is receiving counselling and in a safe environment.

The man who has not made a plea, will appear in court this week for a bail hearing.
