An employee of a Special Needs School in South Africa raped a 13-year old child with Down’s syndrome. The teenager was reportedly locked in a school and assaulted on 5 August in the East Rand near Johannesburg. The boy’s mom said he came home with a strange smell and acting and said that she could find proof of an assault on the clothing of the boy. According to the reports, the guy threatened to murder the kid if he told his mother what had taken place.
The child and his college were not recognized, nor was the alleged attacker named. His mom said she was worried about her son’s being caught up in college at the end of the day. She and two of the school teachers spent an hour looking for him before they met the alleged assailant.
The guy stated that the kid’ likely slept in one of the schools’ and almost immediately’ found’ the teenager. After they left the mother became deeply concerned as her son began “acting oddly” and seemed to cry. She supposedly discovered indications of an assault when she examined his clothes and said that she felt shocked and disgusted.
The kid told what was supposed to have happened, stating he was assaulted while his mom was searching for him. School authorities informed the local media that the suspect was suspended until an inquiry was carried out. Police said they investigated rape, but did not arrest them yet. Down’s syndrome is a genetic condition that typically creates a certain amount of disability in learning.
It is due to a genetic change in sperm or egg owing to an additional chromosome in the baby’s cell. Down’s syndrome is also at increased danger for complications of health, including heart diseases, hearing difficulties, thyroid problems, and recurrent diseases.
