HE PRETENDED to be a pastor at a local church and told the girls he was using the Bible to save lost souls but that was not the case… He allegedly ended up raping a girl after inviting her and three of her friends to his shack!
The fake pastor found the girls at a park in Wattville, Ekurhuleni on Thursday and invited them to his home to read the Bible.
The girls didn’t suspect anything and went with the man to his shack in Tamboville, where he opened his Bible to read and later prayed for them.
However, when he had finished reading, he told three of the girls to leave so he could explain in detail to their friend what he had read to them.
The girl was undressed and raped several times after her friends had left. She tried to escape but the man locked the shack. She was only released the next morning. She went straight to the Actonville cop shop to open a case of rape.
According to Warrant Officer Ramothakhi Maqabe, a suspect was arrested the same day and has already appeared in court. He was due back in court soon.
The girls told the police the suspect sounded like a man of God and they never doubted him when he said he was helping lost souls.
The victim is receiving counselling at the police station’s trauma centre. The cops warned girls not to go to strangers’ houses because it could lead to them becoming victims of crime.
