A 68-year-old male has now been entered in the Register of Sexual Offenders and alongside that, the Johannesburg Magistrates Court enforced a life sentence on the 2nd March 2020.
The victim has been reported to be an 11-year-old girl living in Bassonia, the man was only visiting the uncle of the victim when he attacked the young child.
The uncle who was looking after the girl trusted the man to watch over the girl while he went and took a bath, they were both left watching television.
Once the uncle left the room the accused man “grabbed” the victim and dragged her to the toilet, where he carried out the horrific rape attack on the girl.
The uncle is said to have rescued the girl from the man before he got away, the Mondeor Police later found him hiding in bushes in the area where he was arrested.
The incident happened back in December 2018 and two years later the final sentence was put forward in Johannesburg.
“We trust this sentence will deter individuals from committing crimes against women and children.” said Cpt Mavela Masondo
