Johannesburg - A Western Cape policeman was arrested on Monday for allegedly raping a woman in the Langebaan police station, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) said.

The 53-year-old officer was taken into custody after allegedly raping the woman, 23, who was arrested for possession of tik and Mandrax on Friday, November 16, spokesperson Moses Dlamini said.

"[He] took the victim out of the cells to his office. The suspect then allegedly forced the victim to perform oral sex on him," Dlamini said.

One of his colleagues interrupted him and the woman was taken back to the cells. The officer returned to the cell where he allegedly raped her. He allegedly raped her again on Sunday.

The matter was reported to the Ipid on November 22 and the officer was arrested on Monday. He would appear in the Langebaan Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
