Cape Town - A police constable from Paarl in the Western Cape has been arrested for allegedly raping his ex-wife, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate said on Tuesday.

The officer was arrested on Monday, spokesperson Moses Dlamini said.

The couple had separated and were living in different houses. The 29-year-old woman was walking home on Monday night when the 33-year-old constable stopped and offered her a lift. He drove to a quiet place next to a river and wanted to have sex with her. She refused, Dlamini said.

He allegedly forced himself on her and raped her in the car. She opened a case against him. The officer is expected to appear in the Paarl Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Earlier this month two policemen, a captain and a constable, appeared in the Worcester Magistrate's Court on charges of raping women in marked police vehicles.

In Johannesburg, a Randburg police constable is currently facing 14 counts of rape, 14 of kidnapping, and nine of robbery. The crimes were allegedly committed between 2011 and 2012.
