ON August 16, the Scottburgh Regional Court convicted and sentenced a 31-year-old man to life imprisonment for rape and nine months for assault.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid said in September 28, 2014 two children from the Bombo area near Msinsini were assaulted and raped by a person known to them.

“The man assaulted the 14-year-old boy with a bottle to his head and raped the 13-year-old girl,” said Wiid.

She said the incident was reported and police arrested the suspect.

In another case, a 50-year-old man was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for raping a five-year-old child at KwaQoloqolo.

The man is believed to have lured the victim to his house and raped her on March 1, 2015.

Both cases were investigated by Shaun Pillay of the Port Shepstone Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit.
