A mother of a four-year-old girl at Onayena had a shock after witnessing her daughter being sexually assaulted in a hut.
Her cousin, aged 15, is accused of defiling the toddler. He was entrusted by the mother to take care of the little one, as she had to attend to something away from the house.
The incident happened on Monday around 15h00. “It is alleged that a victim and suspect were left at the house alone by the biological mother of the victim. Upon arrival, she found the suspect on top of the victim having sexual intercourse with the victim. The incident happened at Uutumbe village, Onayena. The suspect has since been arrested and is due to appear in Ondangwa Magistrate’s Court,” said Oshikoto’s crime investigation officer, Paulus Endjala.
