Man held in alleged rape of ten year old girl

A man said to be in his thirties, has been held in the alleged rape of a ten year old girl  at a location near the City.

The alleged incident occurred shortly before noon today, it is reported.

According to the child’s relatives, she was left alone in a shop while her guardian went on an errand.

A man who claimed to have been an eyewitness said that from his vantage point, he noticed the child bobbing up and down as if to music, but could hear no melody.

He told the Times he found it to be curious and went to investigate.

According to the man, he saw an individual whom he identified by a nickname, having sexual relations with the child.

He said the child was fully clothed except for her undergarment and the man was naked from the waist down, his private parts exposed.

The eyewitness said  when he raised an alarm the man pulled up his  undergarment and trousers and  fled, only to be arrested later by the Police.

“He kept saying he didn’t do it,” the eyewitness told the Times.

He asserted that the alleged rapist later claimed that the child “came”onto him.

Persons on the beach who said they were aware of the incident told the  Times that apparently, the alleged perpetrator would normally hang around the area and perhaps may have won the trust of the child’s relatives.

The ten year old was taken to hospital following the incident.
