A 6-week old baby was allegedly recently raped by an unknown man in Diepsloot Extension 12, north of Johannesburg, South Africa.
The mother of the baby has refused to mention the rapist fearing she may be attacked or killed.

In confidence, the mother told the neighbour her plight but refused to disclose the wicked criminal who carried out this evil on a baby.
However, the news is doing the round gradually in Diepsloot and the mother is being advised to report the matter to the police.
“She won’t report it. She is very afraid. Things like this happen all the time”. These were the words of Gabriel who got the information from the grapevine in Diepsloot.
