I have said it before and I will say it again people, social media is not always your friend!

According to a report by Beeld, a 13-year-old Pretoria girl was raped by a 45-year-old man she met on Twitter. She skipped school to allow a man to meet her at her parent house, but when she open the door she realised that dude was a lot older than he pretended to be online. When she tried to close the door, he forced it open and proceeded to rape her.

The good news is that he was arrested shortly afterwards and appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court for the second time this past Wednesday. We wont know his name yet as he has not been formally charged.

The victim had been speaking to the alleged predator online for some time, but he had not posted a picture of himself on his profile.

If someone is still an egg do not invite them to your house!
