PRETORIA: Child safety has again come under scrutiny as a man allegedly preyed on a 6-year-old girl at a Dros restaurant in Silverton on Saturday in Pretoria and later followed her to the toilet, where he raped her.

The 20-year-old man made a brief appearance in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday on a charge of rape. He appeared to have been beaten badly, and had a split ear. The matter was postponed to October 2 for further investigation and the accused will remain in custody.
