THE 20-year-old man accused of raping a 7-year-old girl at a Dros restaurant told a Pretoria court on Tuesday that officers at the Silverton police station severely assaulted him while in custody.
Protesters gathered outside the court to voice outrage against abuse of children.
His bail application was postponed. The trial is expected to continue on November 1.
