Police say he allegedly attacked a 10-year-old boy in his company vehicle earlier this month and then a six-year-old girl in Inchanga, west of Durban.  

The police's Thembeka Mbhele says members of the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences unit closed in on him - after they received a tip-off from his employer.

"The man requested the boy to show him directions to the Roman Catholic Church. The boy unfortunately got into the truck and they drove towards the church. 

Mbhele says when they arrived at the church, the suspect drove past and stopped in a deserted area where he raped the boy. 

"He went to a second house where two children were playing. He took a six-year-old girl and raped her," Mbhele said.
