A 14-year-old boy was arrested after he was allegedly caught red handed while raping his 11-year-old neighbour in Mpumalanga yesterday afternoon.

The girl stays with her grandmother in Haartebeeskop near Ermelo, Mpumalanga.

The suspect is alleged to have attacked the victim soon after her grandmother had left the house, and was spotted by a neighbour who had been watching him.

According to police, the neighbour went to the girl's house to investigate and found the door locked.

"She went around the house to the window where she peeped through and saw the boy allegedly undressing and then raping the girl," said Mpumalanga police spokesman, Superintendent Abie Khoabane yesterday.

The 22-year-old woman called the police who quickly arrived at the scene and arrested the boy.

Khoabane said the girl made a statement to the police and the boy was expected to appear in the local magistrate's court soon.

He said the boy was being kept in a separate cell due to his age.
