SAPS spokesperson Dumisani Ncongo reported that a case of attempted rape was opened against a 42-year-old man after he attempted to rape a three-year-old girl in Kokstad last weekend.

“The man was drinking with other men, and when he went to the shop to buy more beer he asked the young girl to accompany him.

“Along the way, the young girl was seen by her grandmother holding her underwear and the matter was reported to police,” said Ncongo.

He said the man was arrested and is facing a charge of attempted rape and will appear in the Kokstad Magistrate’s Court soon. - Supplied.
