BREDASDORP - Five-year-old Kayde Williams was raped before she was killed, Bredasdorp police confirmed on Friday.

The young girl's body was found in bushes in the area on Monday, exactly two years after 17-year-old Anene Booysen was raped and left for dead in the same town.

Officials said post-mortem results showed Williams was sexually assaulted prior to her death.

Police further revealed the girl sustained severe head injuries.

Authorities say no arrests have been made in connection with the crime.

Bredasdorp police's Maree Louw says, "Currently, the investigation is still sensitive. We are following up all leads."

Police are hoping for a breakthrough soon.

Bredasdorp community members meanwhile held a march on Friday calling for action.

Resident Minnie Jantjies says, "We want action from the police."

Williams will be laid to rest on Saturday.
