SWAKOPMUND, 28 JAN (NAMPA) – A 17-year-old boy is in the dock after he reportedly raped his 11-year-old minor neighbour at Karibib on Saturday.
Namibian Police Force crime investigations coordinator for Erongo, Deputy Commissioner Erastus Iikuyu confirmed this incident in a report on Sunday afternoon.
It is alleged that between the hours of 09h00 and 15h00, the victim was alone at home in the Harambee residential area where her mother left her in order to attend a funeral.
The victim, after the suspect called her to ask for sweets, went to the neighbour’s house, who raped her shortly after telling him she did not have any sweets.
“The suspect undressed himself and forcefully removed the victim’s shorts before proceeding to have sexual intercourse with her under coercive circumstances,” said Iikuyu.
The victim reported the incident and the suspect was arrested and expected to appear in the Karibib Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
Police investigations are ongoing.
