A 19-YEAR-OLD man was arrested for allegedly raping a 14-year-old teenage girl in Shayamoya last Friday.

SAPS spokesperson Captain Dumisani Ncongo said the teenage girl was on her way home when she was approached by the man.

He allegedly took the girl into his house and tied her hands with a rope.

“The man allegedly raped her in his house. Another man who allegedly entered the house [after she was raped] did not help the young girl when she asked for help.

“The man released the young girl to go home and the matter was reported to the police,” said Ncongo.

The man was arrested last weekend and appeared in court on Monday on a rape charge. The case was postponed to April 5 for bail application. The man remains in custody.
