Cop accused of teen's rape could face more charges

JOHANNESBURG - The Johannesburg policeman who stands accused of raping a 13-year-old girl, could face more charges.

The Magistrate said the prosecution had a very strong case against the 30-year-old officer, who was denied bail at the Vereeniging Magistrates Court yesterday.

The off-duty policeman, stationed at Ennerdale, allegedly abducted and raped the teen last week.

He was arrested in Kliprivier by four policemen who allegedly caught him in the act.

The case is expected to continue on 31 July.

“We very happy with the handling of the case so far. The prosecution was well prepared, the witness was good and the magistrate was fantastic,” Shayda Vance of Lawyers Against Abuse told eNCA.

Scores of protestors gathered outside court to support the teenager and her family.
