Rape, murder, of girl (4) suspect appears in court, Khayelitsha

Eager to ensure that the killer of four year old Iyapa Yamile is brought to justice, detectives working on the case pursued every avenue which resulted in the arrest of a 29 year old man on the evening of 13 July 2017 in Khayelitsha.

Iyapa’s lifeless body was discovered in Town Two in Lingelethu West on 1 May 2017 and investigations eventually led to the arrest of two suspects who were later released because of a lack of circumstantial evidence.

The suspect arrested on Wednesday is due to make a court appearance in Khayelitsha on the morning of 14 July 2017 to face charges of murder and rape.

Crime committed against children is a top priority of the Western Cape police and we will use all our resources to apprehend those responsible for preying on young victims who cannot defend themselves.
