Cape Town - A man suspected of killing six women in Cape Town appeared briefly in the Goodwood Magistrate's Court on Monday.

The 30-year-old Gugulethu resident appeared on a charge of robbery with aggravating circumstances and a count of rape, according to Eyewitness News.

The case was postponed until Thursday for a formal bail application. He has reportedly taken part in an identity parade, as police continue to investigate the case.

The man was arrested earlier in January after being linked to one of the women by a phone which he had used. The bodies of the six women were found in a field near Century City train station at two-month intervals, according to earlier reports.

The Daily Voice reported that the man worked as a security guard in the Century City area, but left his job after the sixth body was discovered in December.
