A pastor was arrested on Thursday for raping a 15-year-old girl in Butterworth, said Eastern Cape police.
The incident took place last Thursday near the Ibika informal settlement when the pastor allegedly lured the girl to a spot near an unused railway line, said Captain Jackson Manatha.
“She tried to run but the pastor overpowered her,” said Manatha.
The 20-year-old pastor was charged with rape and will appear in the Butterworth Magistrate's Court on Monday. – Sapa
