Man arrested for mutilating toddler

A man was arrested after he used a pair of scissors to cut off the male member of a two year old boy. The incident happened at approximately 11pm on 21 December 2017 in Rosemoor, George.

The suspect, believed to be the boyfriend of the child's mother, fled from the scene, but was arrested shortly after.

The victim was sleeping in his bed at the time of the crime. His mother woke up from her child screaming in agony.

Due to weather conditions, a helicopter could not be used to transport the child to Cape Town and he was taken to the Red Cross Children's Hospital in Cape Town by road in an ambulance. According to reports, his penis was almost completely severed.

A spokesperson for the South African Police Services confirmed that a man in his thirties was taken into custody and he is due to appear in court on Wednesday 27 December 2017.

Police also removed a blood stained pair of scissors from the crime scene.

At this stage the condition of the boy is not known.
