Sad! Man, 67 arrested for raping 9-year-old stepdaughter

A 67-year-old man was recently arrested by the Police in Eastern Cape for allegedly raping his nine-year-old stepdaughter.
The suspect was arrested last month at Yako informal settlement in Butterworth.
It is alleged that the rape took place a day before his apprehension at about 7:20am at the informal settlement. 
According to police, the mother of the victim had gone to work and had left both the suspect and the victim in their shack.

Police spokesperson Captain Jackson Manatha said that upon her return from work, the mother noticed that her daughter was behaving in a manner to which she was not accustomed. The woman questioned her daughter closely and the girlbroke down and told her about the alleged rape. A case was subsequently opened at the Butterworth police station.

“Police acted swiftly and found the suspect at their shack. He is due to appear before the Butterworth Magistrate's Court on Thursday 14 December.”
