Johannesburg - A police captain arrested in Worcester for allegedly raping a 46-year-old woman in his official car is expected to appear in the Worcester Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) spokesperson Moses Dlamini said on Friday: "The complainant alleges that on 20 June at about 23:30 she was raped by the suspect who was driving a marked SAPS vehicle while he was on duty.

"The suspect allegedly threatened to shoot the victim and her son if she reported the matter to anyone which resulted in her not reporting it immediately after the incident," he said.

The 46-year-old man was arrested on Thursday after the woman opened a case against him.

"The Ipid conducted an investigation and decided to arrest the suspect on the same day based on the evidence uncovered," said Dlamini.
