Cop held for holding cell rape

2011-12-18 14:20

Johannesburg - A police constable has been arrested for allegedly raping an awaiting-trial prisoner at the Glendale police station on the north coast of KwaZulu-Natal, police said on Sunday.

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

"He found a 32-year-old woman who told him she had just been raped by a constable at gunpoint."

The woman was in custody for assault.

Naicker said the constable had run away after the rape, but he was later caught in the area.

He was expected to appear in the KwaDukuza Magistrate's Court soon.

    Gives PIGS (police) a whole new meaning!

      are you talking about all 160000 of us or only those individuals that are not worth to wear the uniform

      Why generalise?

      Charmain - 2011-12-18 22:23

      @ paulmnk: So it's a generalisation. Just like the generalisation that ALL women are available to be raped, abused and dehumanised by men. If any copper feels so strongly about the purity of the farce / force, then show us how you make this excuse of a human being pay for his heinous crime. But no, guaranteed, the docket will disappear and he'll be a free man until the day his sorry ass dies. His buddies in blue will protect him, they stand together, one "man" for another. The truth, don't trust any one, least of all a cop!

      @JR When we read of the frequency of these atrocious crimes by SAPS members, and the lack of response, then yes, the entire force will be painted with the same brush. Daily we read about or experience the bribery, rape, murder, assault, hi-jackings, ATM bombings, armed robbery etc, etc, carried out by the "boys in blue". Get your house in order then come talk to us again.

      @John Loveland: Yes John and daily you also read about the cops being injured and killed protecting people like you. Read your article again, they already arrested him. Yes dockets go missing, yes there's plenty bad cops, but also go see how many do end in the jails and dismissed. Oh wait you do not know do you? Wish we could get rid of them in one sweep, but welcome to the real world in SA. Have to be on JR on this one. There is some real good cops out there that do try make a difference. People that do not deserve getting injured protecting the likes of you, but will still do it regardless.

      @Varkie I suggest you to read again the words of John Loveland "Get your house in order then come talk to us again" We all know about the real "good" coops...trust me. We all know that most of them are not equipped, missing radios, vehicles etc. But, Position your statement correctly....Get your message right to us and we will support your words as the words of all 16 000 Police Members (I'm asuming reservists; real figures are a bit different). You don't need to explain a daily stories about SAPS. Why you and JR not come on these lines like: "16 000 Members of SAPS will hunt down anyone that doesn't deserve this uniform"...? Police is always hated and always needed.Is not an isolated event in South Africa...is all around the world. About Comrade...please forgive him. He gets over-excited so quickly. He will shout exactly like me, when needed..."Police, Help"

    Fortunately this is only some of the people in uniform. The sooner they get sorted out, the better for the force and the rest of us.

      PyroSA - 2011-12-18 15:11

      Agreed - but the bad ones catch so much attention and psychologically people grab the bad bits :( The more bad seeds can get sorted, the better for everyone!

    Time to bring some white policemen back into the force, to control the little thugs that they are empolying.

      paulmandlankosi - 2011-12-18 21:57

      Remember to motorbike shooter

      Nompumelelo - 2011-12-19 11:35

      u sound racist

      Kurt Grant Abrahams - 2013-06-03 12:19

      I might be wrong but I dont recall seeing a metion of the constable being of any particular race. He could have been white for all we know...

  • braamc - 2011-12-19 06:14

    Quite easy to generalise for the cops is in the news for rape, murder, corruption on a daily basis.

  • cheyna.stewart - 2011-12-19 08:10

    really puts your mind at ease knowing the people you are supposed to go to for help or justice are the ones who will most likely hurt you. No chance im ever stopping for the cops. EVER!!!!

  • Nompumelelo - 2011-12-19 11:38

    Its really disgusting...but there's still plenty good cops out there.

  • Faith - 2011-12-23 19:15

    What's the point of police officers again?

  • John - 2012-03-16 18:17

    what you fail to realise is the generalisation is made because a cop stands for a cop and hides behind the badge. if more cops took the moral approach and stood up and spoke out there would be no generalisation, saying that i myself have been slapped around for no reason by cops who abused the badge and good cops just stood watching not saying a word is that fair.
