Bloemfontein – The case against a man who allegedly robbed and raped an elderly woman has been postponed in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.

Captain Chaka Marope said David Moeketsi, 32, appeared briefly in court and the matter was postponed to April 21 for a formal bail application.

Moeketsi was caught in Bochabela on Tuesday, following an intensive manhunt, Marope said.

In February, he allegedly attacked the 86-year-old woman, raped her, and made off with her cellphones, money, jewellery, and computers.

He was linked positively to four cases of house robbery and rape which allegedly occurred last year.
