His arrest follows an allegation that a 14-year-old girl was raped when she went for a photo shoot at a modelling agency in Loop Street last week.

Police spokesperson Sgt Noloyiso Rwexana said on Wednesday the teen said she was raped by a man when she went for the photo shoot on June 24.

Officers pounced on the agency on Tuesday and arrested the suspect.

National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said the case against the man has been postponed until next Tuesday for a formal bail application.
