Tshesebe police are investigating a case in which a 30-year-old man is suspected to have defiled his 15-year-old cousin at Kgari Village in Mabunda ward.
Tshesebe police Station Commander, Amos Kekgathetse, confirmed the incident that was reported last Sunday by the victim’s mother. “She reported that she saw some bruises on her daughters face and that when she interrogated her she told her she had been having sex with her cousin,” revealed Kekgathetse.
The Station Commander added that the young girl confessed that she had been having sex with the cousin since July 2019.
“She could be doing Form 3 but she dropped out of school because of some family disputes. The suspect is on the run and the police are looking for him,” added the police boss.
The Station Commander said it was their first such case in their jurisdiction.
