A teenage boy turned himself in to police after it was discovered that he had sex with his younger sister.

Police said that the 12 year old girl and her teenage brother lived with their aunt in South Africa.

They grew up together and were very close to each other. However, the close ties took an ugly turn. The girl, who is still in elementary school, became pregnant after her 16-year-old brother had sex with her.

The girl’s aunt recently had realized that she suffered from constant morning sickness and began to suspect that her niece was pregnant. She took the 12-year-old girl to a clinic and it was confirmed that she was pregnant.

Family members who were furious over the incident, reported the matter to the police. The victim told police that her brother sneaked into her room during the night when he woke up to use the bathroom.

The child said that he raped her more than five times. The 16-year-old boy surrendered to the police immediately after a case had been opened.

KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) police spokesperson Major Thulani Zwane, said that they are still investigating the incident. Police spoke to the 16-year-old boy, but so far, he was not arrested.

Police will take DNA tests after the baby is born.
