Man nabbed for raping child, slitting her throat
A Katlehong man has been arrested for raping a seven-year-old girl and slitting her throat.
“It is alleged that on November 20 last year the suspect broke into his ex-girlfriend’s shack in a squatter camp in Palm Ridge, Eden Park,” Captain Pinky Tsinyane said.
“The mother was not there when he found her two children asleep.”
He allegedly raped a seven-year-old girl, slit her throat and fled the scene. The girl was hospitalised and survived.
Since then, the police had been searching for the man who recently started working at a factory in Wadeville, south of Johannesburg.
“Yesterday they received information that he was back at work, working night shift. He was arrested in his rented shack this morning in extension two Katlehong.”
He was expected to appear in the Alberton Magistrates Court on charges of rape, attempted murder and house breaking.
