Cape Town - A De Aar man has been arrested after the body of a 13-year-old girl was found close to his home, Northern Cape police said on Monday.

A passerby found Nomvuyo Daki’s body around 05:00 on Sunday, said Lieutenant Sergio Kock.

“Her body was on the pavement and she suffered some head injuries. At this stage, we cannot rule out the possibility of rape,” he said.

A post-mortem would determine the exact injuries.

It is believed that the teenager had earlier visited the 32-year-old man’s house.

Kock said the man was expected to appear in the De Aar Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
