Serial rapist nabbed

- Continued from page 1.

The suspect was initially released due to a lack of evidence, but was re-arrested two months later when investigators received the results of DNA tests positively linking him to 11 cases. More charges were added at a later stage.

The alleged serial rapist’s youngest victim is said to have been a 14-year-old girl. As with most of the other victims, the assailant threatened her with a knife and forced her to walk with him to a secluded spot where he raped her multiple times and robbed her of her cellphone and other possessions. The accused faces charges of kidnapping and robbery with aggravating circumstances in addition to three counts of rape in connection with the incident.

The accused abandoned his bail application last year.

Eric Ntabazalila, provincial spokesperson of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), confirmed the case had been transferred to the High Court. A pre-trial hearing is set to take place on Friday 31 May.
