47 year old warrant officer arrested for rape

Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) investigators arrested a 47year old Warrant Officer for rape on 19 March 2019. The suspect is attached to the VIP Protection Unit.

The suspect appeared at the Protea Magistrates Court on 19 March 2019 on a charge of rape. The case was postponed to 20 March 2019 for a formal bail application.

The case emanates from a June 2018 incident in which the complainant alleges that she was in the suspect's vehicle, coming from church, on the way to her place of residence. She alleged that the suspect drove to an open field where he penetrated her with his fingers.

After the complaint was reported to IPID, an investigation was conducted and the docket was submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), who authorised a warrant of arrest, which was executed on 19 March 2019.
