A video, taken moments after a six-year-old girl was allegedly raped in the bathroom of the Dros restaurant in Silverton, Pretoria on Saturday, has emerged.
It showed a man, naked and covered in blood, in the men’s toilet and patrons at the restaurant could be seen lashing out at him.
In the video, he was asked what he was doing and responded that there was nothing wrong with him mentally and that he was there to use the bathroom to relieve himself.
The man was arrested and is in police custody.
He is expected to appear in the Pretoria Regional Court on October 2.
By law, he cannot be identified until he has pleaded.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, Dros confirmed the incident.
“We have been in contact with the parents of the child to convey our sympathy and offered our assistance in any form that would (or could) reasonably be required in a matter of this nature,” the statement read.
