Two men will appear in the Atteridgeville Magistrate’s Court on Monday on rape charges after they were arrested last month in connection with two separate incidents.

In the first case, a 25-year-old man was accused of raping a 12-year old girl in the bushes near a hostel in Saulsville.

The girl’s uncle allegedly caught him in the act but he ran away.

The alleged rapist was arrested on Christmas Eve when police were called in to deal with a fight at the hostel.

The commotion drew several Saulsville residents including the girl who pointed out her attacker.

In the second case, another man allegedly kidnapped a 15-year-old girl on Christmas Day, took her to his house and raped her but he was taken into custody a few hours later.

Both men were expected to apply for bail.
