Johannesburg - A woman was drugged and raped after being confronted by a man while walking home from a night club in Klerksdorp, North West police said on Friday.

The man dragged the 47-year-old woman to his home where he forced her to swallow pills at 02:30 on Thursday, said Captain Amanda Funi.

It was not known what the pills were, but they made the woman feel drowsy and weak.

The man raped the woman and took her home. She phoned her ex-husband, who in turn alerted paramedics.

Later in the day, police arrested a 42-year-old man in connection with the rape.

He will appear in the Klerksdorp Magistrate's Court on Monday, Funi said.

The woman was in a stable condition in hospital.
