The man accused of raping a 7-year-old girl in the bathroom of a Dros restaurant in Pretoria has refused to hand over his cellphone to assist the State with its investigation.

This was put on record in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday when the State formally applied for access to the cellphone.

It was the accused’s second court appearance since his arrest last weekend. He has not yet pleaded.

Standing in the dock, the accused, who had a shaven head and stitches on the right side of his neck and his earlobe, listened intently as his attorney argued against the State’s application.

 

“My instructions from the accused [are] that he does not want to help the State regarding this issue at this stage. At a later [stage] this issue might be considered,” the attorney, Riaan du Plessis, said.
