A 22-year-old man was arrested for allegedly raping a minor at knife-point in suburban Bandra, police said Saturday. Sher Ali Yasin Sheikh had allegedly entered the house of the 10-year-old girl on September 10 when the latter was alone and raped her after threatening her with a knife, a BKC police station official said.
Sheikh also stole money and gold ornaments from the victim's house, the official added. The victim's mother filed a complaint after the incident following which four teams were made to nab Sheikh, he said.
Acting on a tip-off, police laid a trap and arrested Sheikh from Tata Colony in Bandra's Bharatnagar area Friday night, the official said. A gold chain he had stolen from the victim's house had been recovered, police said.
