Neighbour From Hell Rapes 4 year old Girl. A Durban mum has learned a terrible lesson: when it comes to your children, do not trust anybody!
Her four-year-old daughter was allegedly raped by her fellow tenant in their cottage in Red Hill, Durban on Friday.
The suspect allegedly lured the girl to his room with a promise of sweets while her 44-year-old father was fast asleep.
The father woke up with a shock when the child started screaming. He went to investigate, but when the suspect heard the door opening he ran away.
“I saw my child lying half-naked on the floor, crying,” said the dad.
“I took her to the clinic and the doctor confirmed she had been raped.”
The father then went in search of the suspect and found him in the bushes, before calling the cops. The child’s mother said she had trusted the suspect.
“I never thought he could do something like this. He used to call my daughter and give her sweets. I thought he loved her,” said the mum.
She said what was even worse was that the suspect was HIV-positive.
“The suspect’s sugar mama, who left him a few weeks ago, told us he was on ARVs. I phoned her to tell her what had happened. She told me to rush my daughter to hospital so they could give her anti-HIV medication,” said the mother.
Major Thulani Zwane said a case of rape was opened at the Greenwood Park cop shop and was handed to Inanda cops for investigation. “A man (43) was arrested and appeared in the Durban Magistrates Court last week. He is still in jail.”
