Johannesburg - A 62-year-old man has been arrested for raping and sexually assaulting three girls in Soweto, police said on Wednesday.

Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said the man, who was from Zola, was arrested at 16:00.

"He allegedly raped a 12-year-old girl and sexually assaulted two other girls aged 13 and 15," he said.

The man was a spaza shop owner in the area and gave the girls money after assaulting them.

"The 12-year-old, who was raped this week, said the suspect gave her R10 after raping her. She also said it was not the first time he raped her," said Makhubela.

The man fondled the genitals of other two girls, but was disturbed before he could rape them. He also gave them money, Makhubela said.

The police said the 15-year-old girl, who lived with foster parents, would be removed from their care.

The man would appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Friday.

    Very sad, don't know what possesses these pervs. These kids are probably poor and so they are taken advantage of for R10, my heart goes out to them, probably R10 is more money than they've had in a very long time.

      StreetRacer911 i dont think that will even help to cut off their balls because men that RAPE is so sick and evil that they without a penis just use other objects to still do it in order to get off!!!you found in most cases these man have wifes and girlfriends yet they still rape. and i say again that we need the real men to start publically make a stand against their fellow men that is raping us,our daughters , mothers ,sisters, grand mothers and even our boys.
