A FATHER who stands accused of raping his teenage daughter was this afternoon denied bail when he made his first court appearance on multiple rape charges and incest.
The 42-year-old suspect, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the victim, has been accused of raping his 16-year-old on various occasions since 2016.
It is reported that the suspect would rape his daughter at his sister’s house and sometimes in his vehicle when he would pick the victim up from school or from her mother’s care.
A charge of incest has also been registered against the suspect, who is also accused of forcing the victim to abort at some point during the four years that he sexually abused his daughter.
The suspect was arrested earlier this week when the mother reportedly discovered inappropriate messages he had sent their daughters.
It has also been reported that the suspect on various occasions instructed his daughter to take emergency contraceptive pills.
Allegations are that he would pay the victim and threatened her to keep quiet.
The matter was postponed to November 2020 for further investigations.
