Rapist caught 'red-handed'

A man was allegedly caught "red-handed" raping a four-year-old girl in Sigingqini, Peddie, Eastern Cape police said on Monday. The man (72) was seen leading the child into his home by a neighbour on Sunday, Constable Thomas Mayoli said. The neighbour ran to the child's parents' home and asked them where their child was. When the parents said that they did not know, the neighbour took them to the man's house, where they broke the door down. "They caught him red-handed on his bed on top of the child," Mayoli said. The police were called, and the man was arrested. The child was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The man will appear in Peddie Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.Sapa
