Johannesburg - A 29-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly raping his sister-in-law in Zola North, Soweto, Gauteng police said on Monday.

Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said the man was visited by his wife's sister on Saturday night and the three enjoyed drinks together.

After drinking, the trio then slept in the same room together.

Makhubela said the man then realised during the night that his wife was in deep sleep and not moving.

"When he saw that his wife was not moving, he went to her sister and forced himself on her. The woman tried to fight the man but did not win," he said.

In the morning, the woman woke up and reported the matter at a police station.
The woman was taken to a doctor for medical examination.

Police then went back to the house and found the man with his wife.

"The wife was shocked when she learnt that her husband had raped her sister while she was in the same room," Makhubela said.

The man was arrested and charged with rape.

He will appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
