Rustenburg - A man who got into bed with a woman and allegedly raped her, with her thinking he was her boyfriend, appeared in the Rustenburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.

The 26-year-old would be back in court for a formal bail application on April 8, Captain Pelonomi Makau said.

He allegedly raped a 41-year-old woman in her house on Saturday morning on the farm Bochfontein, near Rustenburg, after forcing a door open and getting into her bed. She initially thought he was her boyfriend. He fled when she realised her mistake.
