17 year old girl rape at a police station in Eastern Cape

An Eastern Cape detective allegedly raped a 17-year-old girl inside the Kei Mouth police station, near East London. According to reports the 45-year-old man, made his first appearance in the East London Magistrate's Court on Monday.

This is after the accused went to pick up the teenager for an interview after she opened a case of assault against her boyfriend. According to the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) the suspect raped the young girl inside an office at the police station.

IPID spokesperson Lizzy Suping said that the teen managed to escape after she put up a fight.

"It is alleged the victim cried and, while the suspect was raping her, she bit the suspect on his left shoulder, she picked up a bottle and hit the suspect on his head until the bottle broke," IPID said at the time.

The victim immediately reported the incident to the charge office following her escape. The detective has since resigned and the case postponed to 29 August 2022, for a formal bail application.
