An 18-year-old Rusape herdboy was arrested last week for allegedly raping his employer’s four-year-old daughter.

The man allegedly raped the minor after calling her into his hut.

Acting Manicaland provincial police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Muzondiwa Clean yesterday said the teen was assisting them with investigations and would appear in court soon facing a rape charge.

“We arrested a man identified as (name withheld to protect the girl’s identity) who took aantage of his employer’s absence and raped her four-year-old daughter,” he said.

It is alleged that the girl was playing at home while the mother went to attend a funeral in the neighbourhood.

While she was away, the herdboy is said to have called the minor into his bedroom hut where he raped her.

The girl reported the matter to a neighbour, who aised the girl to tell her mother when she came back, but she did not do so.

The alleged rape came to light on May 7 when the girl’s mother discovered sores on her daughter’s privates.

A report was made at Rusape Rural Police Station, leading to the herdboy’s arrest.
