Toddler's suspected rapist caught

Johannesburg - A man has been arrested for raping a 2-year-old girl and leaving her for dead in bushes near Pulaneng village, Limpopo police said on Sunday.

"The suspect was arrested yesterday [Saturday] in a raid at a flat in Yeoville, Johannesburg," said Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.

"He did not resist arrest and is currently being transported back to Limpopo to face the rape charge," he said.

The police launched a manhunt for the 29-year-old man after the child was abducted and raped two weeks ago.

"The toddler is currently recuperating at home after spending a week at the Mankweng Hospital," said Mulaudzi.

He said the man was expected to appear soon in the Maake Magistrate's Court on a charge of rape.

Provincial police commissioner Lieutenant General Simon Mpembe urged people living in the area to behave themselves and let the law take its course when the man appeared in court.

"I can understand the anger that incidents like these can cause in the community, but I strongly warn people from taking the law into their own hands and seek[ing] some form of retribution," he said.

    Just hand him out to the community and watch them behave themselve,, you wont regret the result.

      I thought that! If he had behaved himself, he would not be in prison and a little girl would be whole. Feed him to the dogs.

    I agree. Cut of his dick. This is a 2 year old child.

  • Wike Mood - 2013-03-03 21:20

      Lazarus Malatji - 2013-03-05 08:46

      No,this is a sin,if u cut his penis that means u want to kill him is wrong.

  • Christina Marques - 2013-03-03 21:36

    He should have it cut off. What does a grown man have to prove when hurting and destroying an innocent toddler's life. Would he perform the same heinous act on a family member? Chuck him in jail and throw away the keys. That goes to all disgusting rapists.

      The sad thing is there are people out there that teach by raping a child your Hiv/Aids will be healed......... They teach that by cutting of a persons head and brining it to the witch doctor that it can make you rich....... Catch the people teaching this nonsense and put them in jail too.

    At some point, hopefully not in the far distant future, we and the govt have to accept the gargantuan mental health crisis that nothing is being done about. All the solutions offered by posters on all these stories are "after the fact". Anyone else out there wondering, How and When we stop creating these monsters to begin with?

  • Annelise Van Der Schyff - 2013-03-03 21:38

    Name the bastard give him to public and justice will be done stone him to death law to lenient

  • Thuto Shomolekae - 2013-03-03 21:42

  • Themba Thwala - 2013-03-03 21:46

    People take the law into their own hands because they don't trust the police........ The poor parents of this child feel helpless, and must still dig up the energy and courage to help that poor little girl heal. I pray for their courage and I pray her memories will become almost non-existent over they years....... Heal my baby, heal.

  • Joao Nunes - 2013-03-03 21:52

    The courts and governments will not resolve this problem....the communities will.......stone him or necklace him...

  • Robert Frankol - 2013-03-03 22:03

    Necklace him!!!

  • Gerald Beer - 2013-03-03 22:15

    This poor child will be scarred for the rest of her life. The law needs to get their act together when it comes to scum who perform acts like this. Even if he gets 20 years she will only be 22 and still have the scars.

    Please give him a people's justice because the cops will give him a R200 bail!!

  • Melecia Boonzaaier Zijlstra - 2013-03-04 07:31

    Hand him over to the women of SA here you will see us stand together, give us a time and a date. We will make sure justice gets done. Like the little girl he wont sleep again. His eyelids will be cut off. He wont talk, his tongue will be cut out. Sex will never again be possible, and he will crap in his pants with a scarred face and body till he dies ....... we have had enough

  • ulandi.potgieter - 2013-03-04 07:59

    He didn't even resist arrest it's because he knows he guilty of harming a innocent 2yr old so he better beware when he gets back to limpopo.

  • Riëtte Nöthling - 2013-03-04 09:47

    My baby girl is 2 years old, I cannot imagine the pain that poor little thing must have felt. It's not human to do these things, it makes me sick to think that a grown man who knows the difference between right & wrong can do such a horrible thing! Kill the bastard in the worst most painful way possible, maybe then he will have some understanding as what he did to the poor little angel.

  • nicolelovelock - 2013-03-04 09:51

    why the hell should the community behave themselves he didn't release him to the crowds

  • Shayne Janks Nicolas - 2013-03-04 10:07

    Give him to the community!!! KILL HIM!!! He deserves to be torutred to death, very slowly, very painfully!

      Lazarus Malatji - 2013-03-05 08:38

      No! we are not allowed to take the law into our hands let the justice do their job,if not GOD WILL DO IT,not us we dnt have that permission to kill someone,GOD WILL PUNISH HIM/HER.

  • Rob Meyer - 2013-03-04 10:35

    The crazy thing is that most of these comments are asking for the public to deliver justice because no one has any faith in the police or the justice system. I do however agree with them all and think he should spend the rest of his life being raped in jail

  • Christina Marques - 2013-03-05 20:02

    He should get life behind bars. Should have 'it' cut off. He is a waste to society. A Dispicable excuse for a human being. She is an innocent toddler.
