The suspect, a local farm worker from the Ceres area, is due to make a court appearance in the Ceres Magistrates court where he will face two charges of rape.
Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut of the SAPS Western Cape Media Centre released a press statement earlier in which he said, "Crimes against children are regarded our top priority, and we will not relax any of our efforts when a suspect in this regard is sought."
"We are pleased with the outcome of our investigations so far and would like to extend our appreciation to the Ceres community who assisted us during the recent weeks," he added.
