Western Cape - A Western Cape police captain has been arrested for allegedly raping a woman he was giving a lift home, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) said on Tuesday.

Spokesman Moses Dlamini said the policeman saw the 30-year-old woman walking home at 5am on Sunday after visiting a friend and offered her a lift. They lived in the same street, he said.

They first went to his house to make a phone call, but once there, the policeman allegedly fondled her, then raped her. She later went to the police.

Dlamini said the policeman was arrested in Robertson on Monday and appeared in court on Tuesday, when he was released on bail of R1000. The case was postponed until December 13. - Sapa
