The man accused of raping at least one woman at the University of Cape Town will appear in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
The 35-year-old was arrested near the Rhodes Memorial on March 12, days after UCT offered a R100 000 reward for information about the attacks on several students.
He faces a charge of raping and robbing a 23-year-old woman at the bottom of the Rhodes Memorial on November 19, 2015.
There was a possibility he could be linked to other attacks in the area.
On Thursday, March 10, another UCT student was attacked, assaulted, and raped off campus.
The 28-year-old student was running along the bicycle path near the Princess Anne Drive bridge in Newlands when a man threatened her with a knife, UCT spokesperson Gerda Kruger said.
He forced her into bushes, held her captive for hours, and raped her. He forced her to walk to a petrol station, where she was able to get away.[Source: News24]
