Man in court after rape of girl
By Chanel September
Outstanding medical, forensic and DNA reports could determine whether a rape suspect is granted bail in the KuilsRiver Magistrates Court. The 10-year-old was expected to give light on what had happened after she was brutally attacked with a hammer and raped. A 25-year-old man appeared in court for a bail application hearing on Thursday. The man faces charges of attempted murder and rape, but cannot be named as he did not plea yet. According to the Cape Argus, Magistrate Beatrice Vermeulen said that the crimes were gruesome and terrible. The bail hearing has been postponed to July 27.
