Dros group responds after rape incident at Pretoria restaurant

The Dros restaurant group has issued a statement confirming an alleged rape of a 6-year-old girl at one of its restaurants in Pretoria.

In the statement, Dros acknowledges the incident and says that they are trying to support the family at this time.

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

Dlulane says that the restaurant group was not willing to go into details of the alleged incident.

However, it is reported that a 20-year-old man was found naked in the men's toilet with the little girl also undressed and bleeding from the groin.

The man will be appearing in court on the 2nd of October and we will see what happens. A lot of people are angry about the situation, there was a bit of mob justice when he was found at the restaurant so we don't know about the bail application...

Bonga Dlulane, EWN reporter

Will he apply for bail, will the NPA oppose it, which is likely to happen...
