22 December 2021 | Crime
A six-year-old girl was allegedly raped last Sunday in the Okakango village in the Okankolo area.
She was on her way home from church with her two siblings who managed to run away from the suspect, leaving the victim, who suffers from epilepsy and heart problems, behind.
Oshikoto regional commander commissioner Armas Shivute said the incident occurred around 15:00.
“The suspect grabbed the victim and had sexual intercourse with her in the bushes under coercive circumstances. After that, he threatened her not to tell anyone,” he said.
He added that the victim’s siblings ran home and informed their mother, who found her daughter lying on the ground half-naked. The suspect ran away when he saw the mother.
Shivute said the suspect - whose age is unknown - is a neighbour and not related to victim.
“The suspect has not been arrested as attempts were made but he fled. Investigation into the matter continues and the suspect will be traced soon,” he said.
