The grandmother of a six-year-old rape victim has denied that a man, who is believed to be in love with her, had raped her granddaughter.
The accused has, however, been found guilty of rape on Monday.
According to a police statement, the incident occurred on 3 June 2017 while the girl was at a residence in Empangeni, KwaZulu-Natal.
It is understood that while the 51-year-old was raping the victim, a relative unexpectedly entered the house to find him on top of her.
Upon arrival, the relative called for assistance from the community.
The accused was allegedly assaulted, but managed to escape.
A case of rape was opened at the Empangeni Police Station.
Following an investigation, the accused was later arrested at his workplace.
