A Boksburg pastor has appeared in the local magistrate's court for allegedly raping a minor.

Police spokesperson Brigadier Mathapelo Peters confirmed to News24 on Thursday that the man, who has not been named, is facing a charge of rape. He appeared in court on Wednesday.

The Citizen reports that the four-year-old's mother opened a case at the Reiger Park SAPS in November last year after she learnt that the pastor had allegedly sexually harassed her child in a toilet.

The matter has been postponed to Tuesday for a formal bail application.
