Cape Town - Two Western Cape policemen accused of raping women in their official cars appeared separately in court on Monday, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) said.

Spokesperson Moses Dlamini said a 46-year-old captain appeared in the Worcester Magistrate's Court and his case was postponed until Friday for bail information.

A woman alleged she was raped on 20 June in the captain's official car and that he threatened to shoot her and her son if she reported him, Dlamini said.

The captain was arrested on Thursday.

A 28-year-old police constable appeared in the same court, also on a rape charge.

The matter was postponed until Thursday for a formal bail application. The constable confronted a woman for alleged riotous behaviour on Saturday, while he was on duty.

He parked his police car behind a school, before allegedly threatening her with his service firearm and raping her in the vehicle.

The woman laid a charge and the constable was arrested the same day.
