A VERULAM man, aged 42, is expected to appear in court soon for sexual assault after he allegedly assaulted his stepdaughter at her home recently.

Police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala said the man was in police custody awaiting his appearance in court.

It is alleged that the suspect arrived at the victim’s house and asked to use the toilet.

Gwala said the suspect allegedly forced himself into his stepdaughter’s room and fondled her.

The stepdaughter screamed for help and the man fled in a car.

“We can confirm that a 42-year-old man was arrested by Verulam police for sexual assault and will appear in the Verulam Magistrate Court soon,” Gwala said.
