six year old raped
The man allegedly attacked the six-year-old inside a toilet cubicle at a Dros franchise in Pretoria on Saturday.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) says a man accused of raping a 6-year old girl in a restaurant in Pretoria will remain in jail.

The man allegedly attacked the six-year-old inside a toilet cubicle at a Dros franchise on Saturday.

NPA's Phindi Mjonondwane says the 20-year-old has been provisionally charged with rape, possession of drugs, assault with intent to do bodily harm and intimidation.

I am saying provisionally because the investigations are still ongoing so the state will determine at a later stage exactly which charges should be referred against the accused person.

Phindi Mjonondwane, NPA spokesperson

The matter was postponed to 2 October for further investigation and the accused is still in custody.

Phindi Mjonondwane, NPA spokesperson

We're not yet informed as the NPA if he has any intention of bringing a bail application. We view rape of minors as a very serious offence so as the NPA where we have grounds to argue against bail we will do that.

Phindi Mjonondwane, NPA spokesperson

An eyewitness says the suspect was beaten up in a mob justice attack shortly after the incident.

Describing events on the evening, Richard claims the man followed the girl to the bathroom.

I was sitting outside and all of a sudden there was a commotion in the restaurant towards the toilet area.

Richard, eyewitness

I have seen this guy in the restaurant before, even the waitresses know this guy. When he got there, he was sitting near the kids play area, while he was having a glass of water, he had his eye on the area, looking at her and waited for her to go to the toilet and followed her.
