The 37-year-old man, who is the girl’s neighbour, took her to a nearby shack where he raped her on Monday, Captain Pelonomi Makau said.
“Police were summoned to the scene after the community allegedly assaulted the suspect. The suspect was taken to the hospital with injuries and was under police guard,” Makau said.
The man was discharged and detained on Tuesday and was expected to appear in the Schweizer Reneke Magistrate’s court on Thursday. – Sapa
