Robertson - A Western Cape policeman accused of raping a 65-year-old woman appeared in the Robertson Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate said.
Spokesman Moses Dlamini said the 37-year-old sergeant, based at the McGregor police station, would be back in court on December 24
for a bail application. He remained in custody.
The sergeant apparently took the woman in his car to a graveyard in the area where the crime was committed on Saturday night while he was off duty.
He was arrested at his home on Sunday after the woman reported the matter to the police.
Dlamini said the man's private vehicle was seized for forensic investigation. - Sapa
