The man who had been at large since  last Wednesday (25) when he committed the rape has been caught and lynched by an undetermined number of citizens living in the area.

Speaking today (Monday) to ANGOP, the information officer of the National Police Provincial Command, deputy inspector Quintino Ferreira, said the accused was a workmate of the child's father.

"According to the report of the child's relatives, the man enticed the girl with candies bought in a canteen and took her to an abandoned place where he committed the crime," he explained.

According to family information, the child underwent two surgical interventions and is still admitted to the maternity ward of Luanda General Hospital.

The officer of the corporation reiterated the call for the population to look for the nearest police posts whenever there are acts that may harm healthy living and avoid justice by their own hands.

In this case, he stressed that the accused should have been referred to the police station where the complaint was made.

He warned that in cases of this kind, those involved are held criminally responsible, turning from victims to defendants.
