HIS 17-year-old daughter was r_ped, but the police allegedly dragged their feet in arresting the suspect.
So the angry father took the law into his own hands and beat up the suspect.
He said at the time of the incident their daughter, who lives in Tembisa, was visiting them in Phumula, near Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni.
The father from Phumula said on 29 August he was working night shift, while his wife was working late.
He said his daughter visited her childhood friend (13) from next door, who asked her to accompany her to fetch her earphones from some guy.
“This guy told them he was going to fetch the earphones somewhere else, but he was actually fetching another r_pe suspect,” said the father.
He said the girls came back at about 10pm, just as his wife was returning from work.
“They were crying and my daughter collapsed.
“She was rushed to hospital and after she was stabilised, she told us what happened,” he said.
The girls’ parents then went to look for the suspects after they opened a case.
“I beat the crap out of him because the police took their time to arrive when we called them to say we found the culprits,” he said.
The police arrested the father along with the suspects.
He told Daily Sun it angered him that the suspects were out on bail and roaming the streets of Phumula.
The other girl’s mother said she hoped justice would be served.
“My daughter is not doing okay,” said the mum.
