Johannesburg - The Democratic Alliance in Gauteng has called for an investigation by the provincial commissioner into the lack of police action in the rape case of a Pretoria North woman.

The woman was raped in front of her seven-year-old son in July and a man was arrested on Thursday after being tracked down using her cellphone, DA safety spokesperson Kate Lorimer said.

"This proves that in the initial month after the rape, nothing had been done to investigate the case.

"The relatively simple procedure of tracking the victim's cellphone had not been followed by the constable initially allocated the case, who, in the face of his incompetence, also made accusations of racism against the victim," said Lorimer in a statement.

She said it was important that an investigation be carried out into the lack of action taken by this policeman.

A new investigating officer, Anerie Robinson, was assigned to the case around September 3, resulting in the arrest of the suspect, Lorimer said.
