Durban - A police constable who was arrested for allegedly raping an awaiting-trial prisoner was denied bail in the KwaDukuza Magistrate's Court, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Wednesday.

Constable Langalethu Dumakude, 31, was denied bail on Monday, said Colonel Jay Naicker.

Dumakude allegedly raped an awaiting-trial prisoner at the Glendale police station on the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal.

A police officer heard strange sounds coming from the holding cells at about 16:00 on Saturday and rushed in to investigate, Naicker said.

"He found the 32-year-old woman who told him she had just been raped by the constable at gun-point," he said.

The woman was in custody for assault.

Dumakude was remanded into police custody until December 28.

    May he also be raped in prison! Good for the judge denying him bail!

    dont stress people... he'll prob appeal for bail like that Peadophile in WC and have it granted. Then if he goes to jail.. he's got two options... fall ill, or be released coz he has learnt his lesson and is re-habilitated... I hope he meets Tiny in jail, Built like a horse..

    That is deserved, imagine am sure its not the first time he has done this, hope he goes to Westville prison where he will be treated like a woman and he'll find himself husbands, and not be remanded in police cells like they usually do

    Hush... Everytime I hear those words in private talks, people Hush immediately. Did you hear them too? Rumors say that just the rich people know all about it. Just do a G00GLE search for "BlueGoldHunt" all one word and click the first site that comes up.
