GAUTENG - On Sunday 15 March 2020, at around 17:00, a 42 year old man was arrested in Diepkloof by members of the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual offenses Unit (FCS) before he was taken to the Lenasia South SAPS holding cells for detention as he faces multiple rape charges.

The arrest came shortly after a case of rape was opened on Saturday, 14 March 2020, after the social workers who were providing the three siblings (girls) aged 10, 8 and 6, with counselling services recommended that a case must be opened after learning with shock from the little girls that their father allegedly sexually violated them on separate occasions during 2019. The suspect allegedly violated the girls while he apparently threatened them not to tell anyone or else he would inflict harm on them.

The South African Police Services views crimes committed against children in a serious light and we will be working hard to oppose his bail application and that he must be kept in custody until the case is ready for trial. The suspect is expected to make his first court appearance at the Protea Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, 17 March 2020.
