Police in the Oshikoto Region have opened a case of rape against a 69-year-old man for allegedly raping his three-year-old granddaughter.

The incident allegedly happened on Sunday at Etuli Village in the Omuntele Constituency.

The victim resides at the suspect's house.

Police said the suspect allegedly told one of the minors to remain behind while others were going to look after goats in the field.

Later, the suspect was allegedly found by his daughter inserting his finger in the minor victim's private parts.

It is further alleged that it was not the first time the suspect violated the grandchild, as he was also caught last year, but the incident was not reported.

The 69-year-old has since been arrested and is set to appear in the Ondangwa Magistrates' Court tomorrow.
