JOHANNESBURG - Police on Sunday said they are hopeful that they will soon arrest a priest who allegedly raped a ten-year-old girl, during a night prayer in Braamfischerville, Soweto.
The incident allegedly happened on 14 April but the girl only reported the matter to police on Friday.
She claimed that during the vigil, the man took her to another room to pray for her, but then raped her.
Police have since gone to the priest's house and did not find him.
Police spokesperson Kay Makhubele said, “Hopefully sooner or later the priest will be arrested. We are appealing to the community, if they know his whereabouts, to contact the police.”
