Cop behind bars after allegedly raping girl at police station

Cape Town - The bail application of a policeman accused of raping a 15-year-old girl at the Montagu police station was postponed in the local magistrate’s court on Wednesday.

The Warrant Officer's lawyer asked that the matter be postponed to October 10 as they were still following up on certain aspects of the case.

The 47-year-old officer is accused of raping the girl on August 30, after she was taken to the police station to cool down following an altercation with her parents at home.

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate is investigating the matter.
