IN a sh0cking incident, a 15-year-old boy from Pelandaba West suburb in Bulawayo was arrested for allegedly rɑp!ng his 12-year-old cousin resulting in her falling prǝgnɑnt.
According to a source the incident happened sometime in December last year.
“It was at around 12pm when the girl was instructed by her 17-year-old brother to go and deliver a pair of shoes to the alleged perpetrator.
“Upon arrival at the alleged perpetrator’s place, the victim found him alone and he dragged her into the house before they headed into the bedr00m.
“While inside the bedr00m, the accused pushed the complainant onto the bǝd and forcibly had ƨǝxuɑl interc0urse with her once without pr0tection,” said the source.
After that the complainant went to her house and did not tell anyone.
The matter came to light on 5 March, when the complainant’s mother discovered that she was prǝgnɑnt.
When she was questioned that is when the girl revealed that she was rɑpǝd by her cousin.
The matter was reported to the police and investigations led to the boy’s arrest.
The complainant was referred to Mpilo Hospital for medical examination.
