Boy arrested for ‘rape’

2018-03-13 06:00

Police are investigating the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl in Rocklands.

Police say on Thursday 22 February at 15:30 officers received a complaint of a rape in Merrydale Avenue.

It is alleged that the girl was on her way home from school when she was approached by two males(i say this because one is a boy).

The suspects then dragged her to an abandoned house where she was raped while an accomplice kept watch as a lookout.

Following information received through a tip-off on Tuesday last week, a 17-year-old boy was arrested.

The suspect faces a charge of rape and the matter is being investigated by Mitchell’s Plain Family Violence and Sexual Offences (FCS) Unit.
