Man charged for allegedly raping child at restaurant



He is reported to have followed her to the toilet before raping her.

Although the company did convey it's sympathy and offered assistance to the family affected, the movement says Dros' reaction is somewhat sanitised. According to an eyewitness, the man had watched the play area where the girl was playing with other kids.

The girl's mum raised the alarm when she heard "shocking noises" coming from the men's room. Unable to open it, the child's mother caused a commotion to force the occupants to open the door. The child was also allegedly naked and bleeding from the groin.

Police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini confirmed to the Mail & Guardian that the suspect appeared in court and was remanded in custody.

A witness told local media that the man had been sat alone near the play area and when asked to order had told staff he was "waiting for a friend". He had to be locked in the toilet for his protection.

The witness said the little girl was "broken" and was shivering with shock as tears streamed down her cheeks.

"Dros Head office hereby confirms that an incident (involving a minor child) took place at one of its franchise outlets‚ namely Dros Water Meyer‚ situated in Silverton‚ Pretoria‚" the eatery said in a statement.

"As this matter is now under investigation by the South African Police Service (SAPS), and due to [its] sensitive nature, we are not in a position to comment and/or disclose any further information".

The group adds that the police should be left to conduct an investigation into the matter, reports EWN's Bonga Dlulane.

A 20-year-old suspect appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday where the case was postponed until 2 October.
