A 22-year-old man was arrested in connection with the rape and attempted murder of a teenager in Soweto on Tuesday, Gauteng police said.

Kagiso police caught him in Meadowlands extension 10 after a tip-off, Lt-Col Katlego Mogale said.

He allegedly raped the 17-year-old girl and stabbed her in the neck with a pair of scissors after breaking into her house in Rietvallei, on the West Rand, around 9am.

She was rushed to hospital in a serious but stable condition. The man would appear in the Kagiso Magistrate’s Court soon.
