According to information received, the 3-year-old’s mother would travel to her farm in the backlands on a daily basis and as such, would leave the young girl with another woman in the neighbourhood.
However, on the day in question, the caretaker reportedly left the child unattended, and it was then that her 24-year-old son committed the illegal act.
This online publication was told that upon meeting her mother later that day, the young girl confided that the suspect had interfered with her.
The police was contacted and upon medical examination, it was revealed that the young girl had been raped.
A search is presently on-going for the 24-year-old man who has since gone into hiding.
