Bloemfontein – A 32-year-old man was arrested in connection with the rape of a 6-year-old girl in Honey Park in Bronville, Free State police said on Friday.  

The incident happened on Thursday evening around 19:00 when the girl was playing with her neighbours' children, said Sergeant Mamello Mokhuoane.

Mokhuoane said when the girl's mother called out for her, she did not respond and was nowhere to be found.  

She was later found by members of the community. The 32-year-old man was allegedly found with her in an open field near Honey Park. 

"The child's mother saw that her child could not walk and was crying. When she asked her what was wrong, the child alleged that the man had raped her," said Mokhuoane.

She was rushed to hospital for medical attention. A case of rape was opened. 

The man would appear soon in the Welkom Magistrate's Court.
