AN 18-year-old man was arrested for a rape by Hillcrest SAPS last week.

According to Hillcrest SAPS communications officer Constable N. Manqele, on Friday 4 March at about 8pm the 14-year-old victim was alone in the house when the man visited her.

“The suspect allegedly raped the victim and fled the scene on foot. A case of rape was reported to Hillcrest police for further investigation and the case docket was forwarded to Pinetown FCS to continue with the investigation,” he said.

The members received a tip-off and the suspect was arrested in his house at Stockville. The suspect will be charged and he is expected to appear into Pinetown Magistrate’s Court soon.
