A 17-year-old boy was arrested for raping his four-year-old cousin in Soweto on Saturday, police said.

"The girl's mother saw her re-enacting the rape and asked her what she was doing," police spokesman Warrant Officer Kay Makhubele said.

"The child told her mother her cousin had done this thing to her."

The girl was taken to a doctor who confirmed she was raped. The boy lives in the same house as the girl and her mother.
