A seven year old girl has died after being raped.
Police say Chelsea Jacob’s mother sent her to a shop late yesterday afternoon. When she didn’t return, a search was launched.
A passer-by found the severely injured girl next to a road near her home in Delft. Chelsea was rushed to the Red Cross Children’s hospital where she later passed away.
It was reported that a blood stain brick was found on the scene of the crime. Police Captain Joe Wilson from Delft Police station said, late last night the local detectives at Delft Police station made a break through in the murder and sexual assault of Chelsea Jacobs by a arresting a 23 year old suspect in Leindein, Delft.
The suspect will appear in Bellville Magistrates Court on Friday on charges of abduction, rape and murder.
