Johannesburg - A police officer based in Benoni has been arrested for allegedly raping his girlfriend's 14-year-old daughter while her mother was at work, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) said on Thursday.

The 33-year-old man allegedly raped her on April 3 and told her not to tell anyone, spokesperson Robbie Raburabu said.

"The girl was afraid because he sort of threatened her not to tell anyone about the incident," he said.

This week, the mother reported the officer to the police after her daughter told her what had happened. The man was arrested on Tuesday around 13:00.

He would appear in the Tembisa Magistrate's Court on Thursday, where the matter was expected to be postponed for a formal bail application.
