A 20-year-old man identified as Tshepo Nxumalo, who allegedly lured a 17-year-old girl via Facebook and raped her in the mountains of Standerton, has been arrested by authorities.
It is reported that the victim was raped in front of her one-year-old child. The incident serves as a reminder that the use of social media by individuals and their children must be done with caution as it could lead to situations that put their lives at risk.
While social media has become a popular means of communication, criminals are also using it to prey on victims, especially children who are more vulnerable.
Thus, parents are advised to monitor their children’s online activities and teach them safety tips on the use of social media platforms.
By taking these necessary precautions, we can limit the occurrences of incidents like the rape of the 17-year-old girl by the Facebook rapist. Overall, it is important that individuals remain vigilant and conscious of the dangers associated with social media when interacting with strangers online.
