According to The Citizen, the boys were detained and taken to the Walter Sisulu Child and Youth Care Centre after they allegedly raped the young girl in Muldersdrift on Friday.

Police spokesperson Captain Mavela Masondo, said the girl’s mother was braiding a client’s hair when her nephew told her about the incident.

A rape case was opened for further investigation.

In a separate incident, the South African Police arrested a 24-year-old man for allegedly raping a five-year-old girl on Thursday evening in Khutsong, near Carletonville, on Thursday.

Masondo said the girl’s mother left her two children, aged 11 and 5, asleep at her home at approximately 9pm to visit her boyfriend.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect bent the corrugated iron and snatched the child, whom he took to the bush and raped. She was found by the police on Sunday after a lengthy search.”
