Several suspects, including a 13-year-old boy, have been arrested in the Western Cape on charges of rape, attempted rape, and sexual assault.

Five of the suspects, aged between 13 and 42, were arrested in different cases in George and Knysna at the weekend.

They’re scheduled to make their first appearance in their respective magistrate’s courts this week.

Police Spokesperson, Malcolm Pojie, says in the case of the 3-year-old, the perpetrator allegedly lured a seven-year-old girl victim to the bushes close to her home and sexually assaulted her.
