A man was arrested on a charge of raping his girlfriend’s daughter at a Monavoni plot in Olievenhoutbosch on Tuesday morning.

Wierdabrug police spokesperson Captain Agnes Huma said the 25-year-old man was arrested at 06:05 after someone notified the mother who was at work at the time of the rape.

Huma said it was not yet clear who the whistleblower was.

The 8-year-old was sent to a doctor for a check-up which proved she had been raped.

A case was opened at the Olievenhoutbosch police station and the suspect was arrested.

Huma said the man would appear in the Pretoria Magistrates Court soon.
