South Africa – On Wednesday, a 22-year-old man has been arrested for severely assaulting two girls aged nine and 13, killing one and also raping the other.
The man was arrested in Sebokeng around 2am.
While the two girls lived in the same house, it’s not known if they are siblings.
Brigadier Mathapelo Peters of the Gauteng police said: “Inside the house, police also found the body of a nine-year old who was declared dead on the scene as well as a 13-year old girl with multiple injuries.
“The nine year old had been severely assaulted. The 13-year-old was also brutally assaulted and is in hospital. It was also medically proven that she had been raped.
“They were alone at the time of the assault and we are trying to establish where the parents were. It also seems as if the girls knew the man.”
