(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested after he raped his stepdaughter while his wife cheated on him.
A woman left her three children in the care of her husband while she allegedly went to see another man.
The mother of Soweto, South Africa, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the children, left her two daughters, ages 8 and 11, and her 5-year-old son, with their stepfather while she travelled to Ekurhuleni, to meet another man.
While caring for the children, the husband sexually assaulted the eight-year-old girl.
The girl managed to escape. She went to a neighbor’s house and told them about the sexual abuse.
The neighbor called other community members after the girl said that it was not the first she had been raped. She also said that the man had raped her over a period of time.
“I was shocked and I alerted the community. The man was arrested on Tuesday,” the neighbor said.
The girl told members of the community that when she told her mother about the rape, her mother did not believe her, and she threatened to beat her over her lies.
The man was arrested. When he appeared at the Protea Magistrate’s Court, many residents came out to protest.
They demanded that the judge should not grant him bail.
One resident shouted: “Down with the rapist, down!”
The girl’s mother was in court with a friend in support of her husband.
All three children have been removed from the home.
