These explosive and horrific allegations were revealed by local security company, Reaction Unit South Africa, after they were called to the scene where the stepfather was severely assaulted by irate community members, last night.

It is believed that a neighbour found used condoms in the suspect’s home. She then questioned the child, who admitted that she was being raped by her stepfather since her mother’s death, five years ago.

The assaulted man on the ground with sex toys, lingerie and pornographic material lying around him.

“The child went on to explain that she and her stepfather had moved to Verulam from Johannesburg in December, last year. He had sealed all the windows in their home and held her captive in the house while he was at work. He also did not enroll her in school so that she would not tell anyone about the rape and abuse she was going through. He had also asked her to sleep with other men to subsidise his income as a mechanic,” the report issued by RUSA revealed.
