A 6-year-old girl was, on Saturday, raped inside a toilet at Dros restaurant Silverton, Pretoria.
On Tuesday, police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini, said the suspect, Nicholas Ninow, had been arrested and appeared in court on Tuesday.
Reports of the sexual assault first surfaced on Facebook on September 22, in a post that reads: “I’m at Dros in Silverton en this man jus raped a six year old in the toilet…police are here, she is bleeding…the guy looks 24.
Apparently he was scouting her while she was playing in the kids area en waited for her to go to the toilet.” On Tuesday, it emerged that Ninow allegedly snatched the girl from the women’s toilet and took her to the men’s toilet where he raped her.
According to reports, the mother of the child could not find her and heard noises coming from the toilet. She reportedly could not open the door and started causing commotion.
The suspect then opened the door and was found to be naked. The child was also undressed and bleeding. Patrons proceeded to assault the suspect.
