Johannesburg - A Welkom man, who was allegedly sexually assaulted by a dog on the orders of his boss’s teenage son, went back to work the day after the alleged incident.

The 57-year-old guard reported the case to the police even though the employer had allegedly threatened to kill him if he did.

According to Free State police, when the guard arrived at work the day after the alleged assault, he was forced to enter the place where the dog was kept.

He told his boss he would rather die than be in the same room as the dog.

The incident occurred earlier this month when the 16-year-old son was protecting a building with the dog.

The teen allegedly ordered the dog to attack the man and tear off his trousers. He then instructed the dog to perform sexual assault on the man. The son allegedly filmed the incident and took photos.

When the man told his employer and the teen’s father about what happened, the father denied his son would ever do that and threatened to kill the guard.

The father also claimed that he had friends who were senior police officers.

“The father and son are facing charges of compelled attempted rape, intimidation and crimen injuria,” said Captain Stephen Thakeng.    

The father and son appeared in Welkom Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday and the father was released on R2 000 bail. They will return to court on 1 April.

* A previous article incorrectly stated that the man was forced to perform the act on the dog. This has been corrected.
