Maake - A self-proclaimed prophet has been arrested after for allegedly raping four young girls for more than eight months in Burgersdorp in the Eastern Cape.

Police said the 32-year-old suspect targeted the victims who were working at his church as ushers.

"Allegations are that this pastor raped all these victims inside the church on different dates after he invited them one by one to come to the church for prayer and while busy praying, he will then attack the victim and rape them," said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.

The suspect will appear before Lenyenye Magistrate Court soon on four charges of rape.
