KwaThema – A man was denied bail on January 30 at the Springs Magistrate’s Court after it was discovered that his stepdaughter (13) was pregnant.

The man, who is accused of the rape of his stepdaughter will remain in custody after he fled a bloody scene days before he was arrested.

It is alleged that a neighbour approached the man’s wife and said their daughter’s body was changing rapidly.

The woman then confronted her daughter and a pregnancy test proved the girl was pregnant.

The girl then told her mother that her stepfather had been raping her for months.

The woman alleges she then confronted her husband.

It is believed that at that point, the man took both the woman and her 13-year-old daughter, and drove to the Springs CBD.

He took them to a doctor who gave the girl medication to terminate the pregnancy.

On the way back to their home, the young girl had a miscarriage.

Upon arriving home, it is believed the man got rid of the foetus and attempted to clean his car.

Some of the neighbours were suspicious of what the man was doing in his car.

They approached him and started questioning him.

Hearing this, the woman then told the community members what happened.

The man fled.

He was arrested a few days later.

“We want to thank the public for their involvement in bringing this matter to our attention.

We really encourage parents to report such cases without trying to protect anyone,” says Captain Johaness Ramphora.
