Boy (10) and girl (6) raped: Pinetown FCS unit arrest man

A 35 year old man from Hammarsdale has been arrested by members from Pinetown Family Violence Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS) this morning, 13 September 2018, for the alleged rape of two children in Inchanga area.

On 8 September 2018, two cases of rape were reported at Inchanga Police Station whereby two victims, a 10 year old boy and a six year old girl were allegedly raped by the same suspect on different occasions.

It is alleged that in the first incident, a 10 year old boy was walking from the tuckshop when he was called by a man who was driving a marked company vehicle, the man asked the boy to show him directions to the Roman Catholic Church. The boy got into the truck with the man and they drove to the direction, but when they got to the place he was asking for, the suspect drove past and stopped in a deserted area where he allegedly raped the boy.

When he finished raping him, he drove back to where he picked the boy from. He then went to a certain house where two children were playing, he took a six year old girl and raped her.

Both victims described the same man to the police as the suspect who had violated them. Preliminary investigations led the police to a company in Hammarsdale where they got all the details of the person who was driving that particular company car on that day.

He was subsequently arrested and is expected to appear at the Pinetown Magistrate Court on 17 September 2018.
