2012-06-11 19:21

Johannesburg - A Cape Town police reservist accused of rape appeared in the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Monday, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate said.

Spokesperson Moses Dlamini said the officer was arrested on Saturday for allegedly raping a homeless man in Bellville.

The matter was postponed 21 June for a bail application.

Dlamini said the homeless man, 39, went to the Bellville police station looking for a place to sleep on Thursday. He was taken to a room at the back of the station.

"A police officer apparently pulled down the victim's pants and underwear. It is alleged that [he] then raped the victim", he said.

The matter was reported the next day after the victim went to hospital.

    What is the difference between law enforcement and the criminal element in appears nothing. We have serious problems with our police force which undermines the entire security of the South African people.

      Only obvious difference I can see is one criminal has a uniform, badge and gun... Doomed are we.

    The DA was going on about reservists, but there is need for extensive screening first; don't rush into this process

      Dee - 2012-06-11 22:37

      Indeed. And add security video cameras in every station room and police vehicle. Will work to protect both the police and public.

    At least the goat in the precinct got some rest!!! and some people say "Since sodomy is on the increase in cape town, this type of thing will now be more common. An unfortunate side effect of the liberal culture."??? why don't you see that some men would do it with a vacuum cleaner if they could! (thank God, there is a special notice coming along with every vacuum cleaner wold in RSA!)

    Does SA have internal affairs? It seems that the police are responsible for more & more crimes these days. Someone needs to remind them that they do not have the licence to kill, rape, or maybe they feel they can get away with it.
