A CASE of rape is being investigated by Kokstad police after a 16-year-old teenage girl was allegedly raped by someone known to her on May 11.

According to police, the teenage girl was walking home from visiting her sister in the Horseshoe Township at about 9 pm when she was approached by the man who forced her into his house.

“It is alleged, the man approached her and asked her to go into his house with her.

“When the girl refused to go into the man’s house, he beat her up with a sjambok and dragged her into his house where he raped her repeatedly,” said SAPS Captain Dumisani Ncongo.

“He only released her to go home the following day and she reported the matter to her aunt who informed the police,” said Ncongo.

He said police had not yet been able to locate the man.
