WESTERN CAPE - Western Cape police believe they’ve nabbed a serial rapist on the Cape Flats.

The 49-year-old man is facing one murder charge and three rape charges.

It’s alleged he chose victims facing dire economic conditions and who were desperate for employment.

One of his victims -- a 20-year-old high school dropout -- said she had been lured with promises of a job at a major retailer.

A friend had introduced her to the man, who came to the rescue of others who were unemployed in the community.

The man is expected to appear in court next month.
