06 September 2018

A local man who was arrested earlier this year now faces 12 charges of rape.

The suspect made his third court appearance on Monday 3 September in connection with a number of rapes in Zwelihle. According to Captain Fadila September, spokesperson for Hermanus police, these sex crimes began in 2015 and escalated earlier this year. The suspect was arrested by constables Trizaan Pieters and Vuyo Kubana.

The 29-year-old man from Zwelihle appeared in the Hermanus Magistrate’s Court on 12 charges of rape. He initially faced 11, but on Monday the court heard the suspect now has a 12th charges against him. According to a reliable source, three of these charges relate to incidents involving minors.

The case had been postponed so the investigation could continue, so that more incidents could be linked to the suspect.

He will remain in custody, and is set to appear in the Hermanus Magistrate’s Court on Thursday 25 October.
