Johannesburg - An Eastern Cape man is being held in connection with the rape of a woman in Papamani near Grahamstown, police said on Monday.

"The 39-year-old man was arrested on Sunday after the woman he had allegedly raped the previous evening recognised his voice as she was passing him on street," said Captain Mali Govender.

She said the 45-year-old woman was raped and robbed on Saturday evening after the man gained entrance to her residence.

The man was expected to appear in court soon on charges of rape and robbery.

    I hope they have more evidence than just his voice.

    if he is the one and is found guilty, then lock him up with sex offenders! The only thing he will hear is '' who's your pappa'' and supply him with lots of soap! The scumbag!!!

    Since 2004 there have been 1458 reported cases of sexual assault in Grahamstown alone!

      Appalling to say the least! This is simply not acceptable! And i thought the reason for police generating stats is to enable SAP to identify high priority crimes/ areas and to deploy officers to the area or send specialised units to deal with the spurge thus providing law abbiding citizens with the a safe living environment as prescribed in the constitution!. ONE RAPE IS ONE TOO MANY!
