A man took advantage of a young girl who came to play on his porch with her friends, according to police in Zimbabwe.

Turk Mine police said that they have arrested the 34-year-old man, who was not identified, for raping his 4-year-old neighbor in his home.

The man was charged with one count of rape at the Bulawayo Magistrate’s Court.

Judge Sibongile Msipa-Marondedze ordered the defendant held without bail.

According to the police investigation, on Tuesday, at around 11:15 a.m., the 4-year-old girl and her two friends came to play on the suspect’s porch.

When the girl’s friends left, the suspect called the 4-year-old child into his house.

The girl complied.

The suspect then took off the girl’s clothes, placed her on a bed, and raped her.

When the girl began crying, the man quickly dressed her and gave her two slices of bread to buy her silence.

When the girl went home, her mother asked how she got the two slices of bread.

The girl told her mother what her neighbor had done and she called the police.
