Johannesburg - A man suspected of raping a mentally ill woman in Soweto was arrested on Friday, Gauteng police said.
The man had been on the run since Sunday after allegedly raping the woman, Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said.
“The man was with the woman's nephew at a shebeen on Saturday night and left the shebeen while drunk,” Makhubela said.
The nephew, knowing that his friend was going to his aunt's house in Zola, left the shebeen shortly afterwards.
“He found his friend on top of his aunt and had a fight with him.”
The man ran away. The police were notified and a case of rape was opened.
The woman was taken for medical attention.
The man will appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court once he is formally charged.
