A 53-YEAR-OLD man was arrested last Monday, November 12, after allegedly raping a 13-year-old boy.

According to police, the man handed himself over on that morning.

The incident allegedly occurred the previous week on November 5 at the accused’s residence on Smith Street, Park Rynie.

“It is alleged that the suspect lured the victim to his house and watched a movie until it was late. When the child wanted to leave, the suspect instructed him to sleep over and thereafter raped him,” said police spokesperson Thulani Zwane.

The victim had reported the matter on November 13. The suspect made a court appearance on November 14 and the case was remanded to November 21 for a formal bail application.
