What force in the world could have impelled a man to commit such a terrifyingly disgusting crime as rape of 1-year-old baby? Despite the horror of the situation, there is such a force in nature. A Western Cape man, aged 57, is currently in custody on accusations of having raped a 1-year-old child.
The local residents are gathering around the possible rapist’s house after news spread that the baby had been raped.
The rape had been reported to the police on Friday and the detectives opened a case of child abuse.
It became known after the mother of the assaulted child had discovered blood on the child’s nappy and immediately lodged a case with the police.
“Initially, two suspects were taken into custody while the investigation unfolded,” police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana advised.
One of the suspects was later released from custody after it had been established that he was not involved in the incident.
The rape charges will be laid against the other man at the Mitchells Plain Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
