Girl raped at top Durban gym: No arrests yet

Durban - Police have still not made any arrests for the rape on Saturday of a 15-year-old girl at a top Durban gym, despite having CCTV footage.

The girl was raped in the change room of the Westville Virgin Active, a gym popular with teenage girls, reported The Witness.

A police source told the newspaper that the suspect is known to the police and “will have the opportunity to explain himself when he is interviewed by the investigating officer”.

Virgin Active spokesperson Les Aupiais told the Daily News that the company was co-operating with police and had offered counselling to the girl and her family.
Aupiais said the alleged rapist’s gym membership had been suspended pending the investigation.

What??? Mr Aupiais, why do you only suspend this bastard's gym membership after what this poor woman went through? I strongly question your morals and ethics on this matter

Why must he explain himself? He raped a 15 year old girl, you have proof, what's there to explain? No man, this is wrong in so many levels. If there was no CCTV footage, it would be a different story.

Oh wow this 15 year old girl's womanhood gets taken away from her in a popular gym and his contract gets suspended ... How do you explain this? As a young woman it breaks my heart to read about daily rapes on young girls and actually any age for that matter ...

And so he should pay for what he has done. What is a CCTV camera doing in the women's change room?
