Johannesburg - A 54-year-old man accused of raping his 13-year-old granddaughter appeared in the Delareyville Magistrate's Court on Monday, North West police said.

Captain Pelonomi Makau said the matter was postponed to May 14, for a bail application.

The man was arrested on Saturday in Extension Eight, Matshelapad, near Delareyville.

Makau said the girl was in the care of her grandfather while her grandmother and aunt were attending a night vigil in the area.

He apparently entered the girl's room and raped her. The matter was reported to the police and the man was later arrested.
