Pretoria - Dros rape accused Nicholas Ninow will be evaluated by three clinical psychologists during his stay at the Weskoppies Psychiatric Hospital in Pretoria.
Ninow is accused of raping a 7-year-old girl in the toilet at the Dros restaurant in Silverton. Eyewitnesses said he had been eyeing the little girl in the playing area and waited for her to go to the toilet.
He is alleged to have grabbed her and taken her to the men’s toilet, where the crime is said to have taken place.
The girl was reportedly bleeding when the police arrived.
Defence attorney Riaan du Plessis indicated to the court on Ninow's third appearance in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, that even though a panel of two psychiatrists or psychologists would normally be tasked as a panel to evaluate an accused person, they wanted to request a third doctor to be added for Ninow.
