Ninow raped 7-year-old girl in toilet cubicle, even as she screamed for her mother to help


A paedophile raped a screaming seven-year-old girl in a restaurant toilet cubicle as she shrieked “mum, please help”.

A court heard how Nicholas Ninow, 21, “stalked his prey” in the play area before following her into the bathroom of the Dros restaurant in Silverton, South Africa.

Gauteng High Court in Pretoria heard the youngster cried out, “please help me”, in the cubicle.

Phindi Mjonondwane, prosecuting, said: “The girl was able to inform the court that, unlike Ninow claimed, he had in fact followed her to the toilet.

So, he went in there with the intention to harm the child.”

Hearing the screams, the mum tried to get inside the bathroom.

She told the court: “As we pushed harder, the person inside said ‘what do you want? You are disturbing me’.”

After they managed to force the door open, she grabbed her daughter, and removed her from the bathroom.

But, she said, the image of Ninow running out of the toilet naked, and into the men’s toilets shocked her.

After she gave her daughter to another woman to look after, she followed him into the men’s bathroom, where she found him “wiping his private parts with my daughter’s tights and underwear.

I asked him why he was flushing my daughter’s clothing, but he didn’t respond.”

Witnesses said Ninow was “high and drunk” on September 22, 2018.

The trial continues.
