Johannesburg - A man who skipped bail while on trial for two rapes in 2010 was re-arrested in Mankweng on Tuesday, Limpopo police said.

The man allegedly raped two University of Limpopo students in their off-campus accommodation, Constable Moses Molepo said in a statement.

The women had picked him out in an identity parade and he was positively linked to the rapes through DNA evidence.

When he failed to return to court a manhunt was launched to bring him back to face trial.

On Tuesday, police caught him after following up on a tip-off. He was found in possession of an unlicensed firearm which had its serial number filed off.

The man would appear in the Mankweng Magistrate's Court soon.
