NPA to report back on school rugby rape
Police say the followed procedures while investigating the alleged sexual assault of a schoolboy.
CAPE TOWN - Western Cape police insist they followed all the proper procedures while investigating an alleged sexual assault case involving a schoolboy. The teenager was allegedly raped with a broom handle and a banana in an initiation ceremony. The attack was filmed on cellphone and circulated among pupils.
The 16-year-old was allegedly sodomised in March, while on a rugby tour in Velddrif on the West Coast.
The matter was reported to police by the child's parents, but the school insists it was a prank.
The victim has since been moved to another school and the Department of Education is investigating the incident.
