Aliwal North SAPS arrested a 21-year-old suspect after the rape of two (2) girls, aged 13 and 14 years, yesterday at about 15:30 in old Hilton Location, Aliwal North.
The police were alerted of the incident after the learner’s teacher observed a change in behaviour from the two (2) girls. She immediately notified social workers and the police. During the session with the social workers and the police, the girls told the social worker that they were sexually abused by the suspect while they were sitting in an old Quantum bus with the suspect on 18 April 2015.
The suspect was arrested and will appear in the Aliwal North Magistrate’s Court soon facing two counts of rape.
