A Cape Town attorney has been arrested over rape allegations involving three minors.

The 36-year-old man was arrested on Friday. 

Police spokesperson Noloyiso Rwexana confirmed the attorney had been arrested after three minors reported him to police.

"Three victims reported the case and one victim is 14 years. The suspect appeared in Muizenberg Magistrate's Court on Monday on charges of unlawfully and intentionally engaging services of a child younger than 18 years for financial/other rewards, to perform sexual act with that child ... whether it is committed or not."
