Johannesburg - A Tanzanian citizen has been arrested for the attempted rape of a 9-year-old girl in central Johannesburg.

Police said on Monday that the child's mother had left her two children in the care of her boyfriend's friend when she went shopping on Sunday evening.

"The suspect [allegedly] started to touch the child and undress her," said police spokesperson Warrant Officer Xoli Mbele.

"She managed to escape and told a man she met on a staircase to call the police."

The suspect, aged 28, is expected to appear in the Johannesburg Magistrates' Court soon.

      You are presuming she knew this man was a child-molester. Most molesters are family members, close friends and neighbours. People you know and trust.

      Which is more of a reason, trust no one with your kids!

    Rapists hardly ever serve a full sentence, so a case of attempted rape will probably not even go to trial. Give this savage to the people of the community. Let them deal with him.

    I am totally amazed at the ease with which these mothers leave their children in the care of strangers. The child was smarter than her mother.
