Johannesburg - A 27-year-old man was arrested for the alleged attempted rape and indecent assault of a 9-year-old girl in Malamulele on Sunday, Limpopo police said.

The man reportedly lured the girl to an RDP house at New Orleans in Malamulele on Tuesday, Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba said.

He said the man was apparently interrupted by community members while attempting to rape the child.

The 27-year-old had been on the run since and was arrested in the same village after a tip-off from the community.

Ramatseba said he was expected to appear in the Malamulele Magistrate's Court soon.

    He has something that needs to be cut off before he can attempt to do any more harm.

      Very lucky guy. Lucky that he is alive to go to prison and meet pappa. If the community got their hands on him he would have lit up the night.

    Good thing that the kid was safe. Parents should really remind their kids to be extra careful especially when outside the house. I am a parent and I am worried that I've been hearing a lot of news like this coming up and so I tried to find solutions and luckily I found one. It's a solution which featured a safety app which gets me connected to a Safety Network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids with just a press of a Panic Button.
