“The accused (Koos), who happened to be her mother’s boyfriend, forcefully broke into the victim’s house and threatened the victim to comply or he would stab her with the knife. He then ordered the girl to undress and he raped her,” said Mashaba.

Afterwards, he robbed the teenager of two cellphones and fled the scene.

“The incident was reported to the police, who opened cases of rape and robbery with aggravating circumstances,” said Mashaba.

“The case was sent to the family violence, child protection and sexual offences unit in Mokopane for further investigation. Sergeant Mogale Billy was tasked to investigate the case further.”

The severity of Koos’ crimes is reflected in the sentencing, as he will now spend the rest of his life behind bars. This landmark decision sends a strong message to potential criminals and serves as a reminder that the South African justice system will not tolerate such heinous acts.

In June 2020, police said Koos was linked to the heinous crime through DNA, and he was arrested.
