‘Rapist’ (23) arrested in Sunnyside

An alleged rapist and 33 other people were arrested in Sunnyside at the weekend.

Sunnyside police spokesperson Captain Daniel Mavimbela said the alleged rape occurred at the man’s (23) flat in Sunnyside on Saturday afternoon.

“According to information we received, the victim, a 22-year-old woman, allegedly accompanied the suspect to his flat, where she expected to received some paintings.”

After entering the flat, the suspect is said to have locked the door and demanded to have sexual intercourse with the victim,” said Mavimbela.

The alleged rapist rejected the victim’s refusal to sleep with him and allegedly raped her.

Mavimbela said the woman tried to make a call but the alleged rapist grabbed her phone from her and smashed it on the floor.

“The police found the man sleeping in his flat early on Sunday morning, and arrested him,” said Mavimbela.

The 33 other people were nabbed for crimes such as fraud, possession of dagga, assault, robbery and malicious damage to property.

All are also expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court soon.
