The alleged rape happened on Sunday morning at Ono Crescent, Leiden Avenue, Delft. Angry residents gathered at the suspect’s home soon after the news surfaced. They called on the police to hand over the alleged rapist so that they could deal with him.
Police spokesperson Andre Traut could not confirm the incident and said the Delft family violence, child protection and sexual offences unit had yet to inform his office of the incident.
But Delft community policing forum chairperson Charles George said: “We are deeply disappointed and condemn this barbaric behaviour of those that are required to protect and love young girls and boys in communities.
“Our hearts are with the family and we demand justice for this wrong behaviour. We are truly saddened by this incident.”
