Kimberley - A man has been arrested in Galeshewe for allegedly raping and impregnating his girlfriend’s 11-year-old daughter, Northern Cape police said on Thursday.

The girl alleged that the 32-year-old man, who was staying with them, threatened to kill her should she tell anyone, said Lieutenant Olebogeng Tawana.

“The victim’s mother took her to the local clinic, after she suspected that she could be pregnant,” he said.

The woman’s boyfriend was arrested on Tuesday after tests confirmed the girl was indeed pregnant.

The suspect was expected to appear in the Galeshewe Magistrate’s Court on a charge of rape later on Thursday.

Tawana told News24 they did not yet know when the incident took place. He also could not comment on the girl’s wellbeing.
