A Rehoboth man is under investigation for the alleged rape of a child in the town.

The 48-year-old seafarer, according to the Namibian Police, raped his 15-year-old former stepdaughter in a riverbed.

It is alleged that the suspect drove with the victim from Groot |Aub to Rehoboth, where he went to a bar in the Block E location and bought alcoholic beverages for the minor. 

The police say that the suspect then drove to Block D and raped the minor in his vehicle.

The incident occurred in April this year, and the minor’s mother only found out after she realised that her daughter had missed her menstrual cycle.

Hardap Regional Crime Investigations Coordinator, Deputy Commissironer Eric Clay, says the police are at an advanced stage to execute an arrest.
