Springs father arrested for allegedly raping daughter

According to Springs police, the man was arrested and charged with rape and concealment of birth but adds that the investigation is ongoing.

Police spokesman Capt Johannes Ramphora explains that it is believed the father started raping the teenager after the death of his wife.

“The father was living in Springs, with his three children, however, he allegedly starting raping the child after the death of the mother.

“He had also allegedly threatened the child, telling her not to speak about the rape, so she lived in silence and fear all this time.

“At some point the child had also fallen pregnant, however, the father again allegedly took her for an illegal abortion, to dispose of any evidence of the evil act,” he says.

Even after the termination of the pregnancy the father kept raping the child.

It is still unclear when the suspect will appear in court.
