Johannesburg - A man accused of raping four women on separate occasions in a sugarcane field in Pongola was still being sought, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Tuesday.

Captain Thulani Zwane said police believed he raped four women in February this year.

"It is believed the man pretended to sleep next to the road before attacking the women and dragging them into the nearby sugarcane field, where he raped them."

He also robbed the women of their money and cellphones.

Zwane said the 25-year-old man was black, slender and about 1.70m tall. A warrant for his arrest had been issued. The Ulundi Family Violence, Child and Sexual Offences Unit was investigating the rapes.

Anyone with information has been asked to contact Warrant Officer Elliot Shiba on 082 856 7430.
