Female in alleged rape video isn't a child
Following the public uproar in response to a video thought to be that of an alleged rape of a minor, it has since been confirmed by the police that the female in question is an adult.
According to police reports, having made contact with the female, who is alleged to have been recorded in the four-minute-long video, it was revealed that the young lady is at least 18 years old. The recording chronicled a male and an apparently hesitant female having sex with the female crying and begging the man to stop.
The video evoked much outrage after being posted to several social networking sites, with persons bashing the man in the video for his treatment of the female.
At this juncture, the police are now investigating the matter with a view of determining if the act caught on tape was in fact rape.
The video, which has since been brought to the attention of the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse, is now being
carefully analysed to determine if there is any criminal misconduct, police said.
