Polokwane - A man accused of raping a teenager appeared in the Nebo Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, Limpopo police said.

Constable Thapelo Lesufi said the 28-year-old man was denied bail and was expected to appear again on October 2.

He was arrested when the 16-year-old girl recognised him at a shopping complex on Saturday. The alleged rape happened in April.

The girl was walking to a shopping centre when a man held her at knife-point, led her to a nearby village and raped her.
