A 19-year-old man appeared briefly in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court yesterday in connection with the rape — several times — and robbery with aggravating circumstances of a 49-year-old Scottsville resident on Friday.

The youth indicated that he intends to plead not guilty.

He is also charged with robbery with aggravating circumstances of a DVD player, a cellphone and bank cards.

The accused said he was given a five-year suspended sentence for robbery in 2004.

The case was postponed until April 14.
