Man kidnapped 12-year-old girl, turned her into his sex slave then attempted to groom her into prostitution

A 37-year-old foreign national is facing abduction and rape
charges for allegedly turning a 12year old girl into his sex
slave in Pretoria, South Africa.

According to Sunnyside Police spokesperson, Captain Daniel
Mavimbela, the Grade 7 learner was reported missing from
her home in Mamelodi in early September.

"According to reports, the girl left home to meet with friends
at a recreational park just outside Silverton,” said Mavimbela.
"Instead 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."

Police  were told that when the girl woke up the following
morning, she saw the man seated on the bed and the
unknown girl was nowhere to be found.

"From that point on the 37-year-old man allegedly kept the
young girl as his sex slave and raped her repeatedly. It is
believed that during the same period, the man attempted to
groom the victim into prostitution."

The girl was apparently beaten for failing to attract motorists
to engage in sexual relations with her. She was rescued after
being spotted by passersby on Thursday when she tried to
escape from the flat.

"Though the man was not present at that time, he is said to
have appeared on the scene. He unwillingly agreed to release
the girl shortly thereafter," said Mavimbela.

"The man was arrested yesterday shortly after the matter was
reported to the local police."

The police’s family violence, child protection and sexual
offence unit is investigating. The man will appear in the
Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Monday, December 5th.
