Media Statement
PRETORIA – 21 February 2013

A 33 year old Constable appeared at the Dealesville Magistrates Court on 20 February 2013 for the rape of a 21 year old woman. The rape took place on a gravel road in Boshof, Free State.

It is alleged that on 17 February 2013 at about 02:30 the victim, who was with other people, was returning from a tavern in Warrenton, Northern Cape. Apparently the suspect was at the same tavern. The victim, who is the suspect’s ex-girlfriend, asked for a lift from the suspect for herself and her party. The suspect took the other people to their places of residence first and he was left with the victim in a state vehicle. The suspect drove to an unknown road and told the victim that they are going to the Free State. The victim asked the suspect to stop so that she could relieve herself. As the victim was getting dressed, it is alleged that the suspect went to the complainant and tried to grab her. The complainant ran around the vehicle to evade the suspect.

The suspect allegedly raped the victim without a condom. The suspect ordered the victim to get into the vehicle and she refused. The suspect assaulted the victim and threatened to kill her.

The victim opened a case of rape at Warrenton SAPS. The suspect fled to Potchefstroom but he later handed himself in at Boshof SAPS. The suspect appeared at Dealesville Magistrates Court on 20 February 2013 and the case was postponed to 25 February 2013 for bail application. The suspect is still in custody.
