BuzzSouthAfrica learnt from SAPS that a 37-year-old foreign national will be dragged to court for turning a grade seven learner into a sex slave for almost two months.
According to SAPS, the 12-year-old girl was reported as missing from her home in Mamelodi early in September.
She reportedly left home to meet with friends at a recreational park just outside Silverton.
However, she came across an unknown girl who subsequently led her to a flat in Sunnyside, east of Pretoria, where both of them were to spend the night together.
When the girl woke up the following morning, she found the suspect seated on the bed. And, her new friend was nowhere to be found.
“From that point, the suspect allegedly kept the girl as his sex slave and raped her repeatedly. It is believed that during the same period, the suspect attempted to groom the victim into prostitution.
“…The girl was granted her freedom after she was spotted by passers-by yesterday during an attempt to escape from the flat. The suspect was arrested yesterday shortly after the matter was reported to the local police,” SAPS narrated.
Already, the SAPS Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offence Unit has been charged with the responsibility to investigate the case.
The suspect is expected to appear before the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Monday. He was charged with kidnapping and rape.

Meanwhile, the Madadeni Regional Court sentenced one Phumlani Wiseman Sibisi (32) to 13 years imprisonment for rape and kidnapping.
As alleged, a 17-year old victim was on her way to school when the accused pulled up next to her in his white motor vehicle and offered the victim a lift.
She got into the vehicle and the accused drove to a veld where he raped her and took her cell phone.
Sibisi was subsequently arrested after a case of rape was opened at the Newcastle Family Violence, Child protection and Sexual offences Unit. He was kept in custody until the sentencing.
