A 28-year-old man appeared in the Zastron Magistrates’ Court near Smithfied in the Free State for allegedly raping his cousin, police said in a statement on Wednesday.
Police spokesperson Sergeant Yanga Ngcukana said the man allegedly attacked his 16-year-old cousin at the home where they both live, in the Matlakeng Location, on August 7 at about 8pm.
Ngcukana said the girl was alone with him, as her 20-year-old sister was away for the weekend. The teenager was taken to a doctor for a medical examination and the suspect was later arrested.
He has been remanded until his next court appearance.
