A man was arrested for allegedly raping two women in Ulundi in Zululand, police said today.

“We arrested him for allegedly raping two women at the beginning of this month,” said Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge.

He said the man would appear in the Mahlabathini Magistrates Court today.

Mdunge explained that the man allegedly raped both women on the same day near the railway line.

“They were on their way from the computer college in Ulundi Plaza when he forced them to the railway line where he allegedly raped them,” he said.

Mdunge said the man allegedly threatened the girls with a gun before raping them.

“He was arrested after one of the victims identified him at a construction site in Ulundi. The other victim also identified him during an identity parade,” he said.

He faced two counts of rape, he said.
