2012-11-27 07:13

Johannesburg - A Western Cape policeman was arrested on Monday for allegedly raping a woman in the Langebaan police station, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) said.

The 53-year-old officer was taken into custody after allegedly raping the woman, 23, who was arrested for possession of tik and Mandrax on Friday, November 16, spokesperson Moses Dlamini said.

"[He] took the victim out of the cells to his office. The suspect then allegedly forced the victim to perform oral sex on him," Dlamini said.

One of his colleagues interrupted him and the woman was taken back to the cells. The officer returned to the cell where he allegedly raped her. He allegedly raped her again on Sunday.

The matter was reported to the Ipid on November 22 and the officer was arrested on Monday. He would appear in the Langebaan Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

    How can we be expected to put our trust in a cop when this sort of thing happens again and again?

    Real men do not abuse. We must all stand up and speak against these barbaric actions and protect our women and children.

      I am speechless, that poor, poor, woman. This 'rape', this insidious action, by police, is being reported now, almost daily. WHERE??? is the law?

    Firstly, how can you say in an article that he 'allegedly' raped her if he was caught in the act? I feel that is an insult to any reader's intelligence. Secondly, until sever action is taken against rapists it will never stop, I say a swift removal of their sexual organs after being found guilty will see a drastic decrease in these offenses. After taking away the dignity and damaging the soul of another person, a rapist should not deserve the right to do so again!

    'One of his colleagues interrupted him and the woman was taken back to the cells. The officer RETURNED to the cell where he allegedly raped her. He allegedly raped her AGAIN on Sunday.' So hang on here. The 'colleague' only walked in on his mate and was sorry about the 'interruption' and made a plan to be scare so that his chommie could carry on 'uninterrupted'. Sick sick sick sick. Sickness needs a cure.

    She was there for Tik and Mandrax, them bitch be tripping. Dont burn the SAPS so quick, let the story unfold then we can run a mock with the comments. Also not ruling out the possibility that he did betray the people's trust in the SAPS.
