A Western Cape police officer has been arrested for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl in Paarl, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) said.
The 41-year-old warrant officer from Mbekweni is accused of raping the teenager on numerous occasions, IPID spokesman Moses Dlamini said yesterday.
In April this year he allegedly went to the girl’s home and raped her twice without a condom.
On another day, it was alleged that he took her to his house and raped her there. Afterwards he dropped the teenager off at school and told the teacher he needed to take a statement from her for a case he was investigating.
On another occasion the officer allegedly picked the girl up in a police vehicle and took her to a field where he raped her.
Dlamini said the girl was allegedly raped on numerous other occasions.
“The mother of the victim found a message from the suspect when she used her daughter’s cell phone.
“The victim had reported the rapes to her cousin but she was afraid to inform her parents,” he said.
The rapes were reported on Tuesday and a case was opened.
The officer is expected to appear in the Paarl Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.
