A 28 year old man was arrested on Tuesday 29 October 2019, allegedly for raping an 18 year old learner. It is alleged that on 21 October 2019, the victim was at school with other learners when their teacher introduced a visitor who was sent by the Department of Education to address grade 12 learners about scholarship and that three learners could be chosen to go and study Medicine in Russia.
The victim informed the visitor that she was interested and he took her cell phone number.
Later during the same day, the suspect called the victim and they met in his car. He reportedly told her he was having grade 12 exam papers that he wanted to give her but must sleep with her first. She allegedly refused and the suspect raped her on the back seat of his car.
The matter was reported to the police and the suspect was arrested. A preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect lied to have been sent by the Department of Education so that he can achieve his evil deeds.
Further probe also revealed that the suspect is also implicated in other rape cases, investigation continues.
He will appear at the Acornhoek Magistrate’s Court tomorrow, 1 November 2019, facing a charge of rape.
