Police hunt serial rapist

Police are in the  process of drawing up a profile of the alleged rapist based on interviews with the victims.

Some of the incidents that have occurred in the past few months include a 30-year-old woman raped in her Scottsville
flat just a stone-cast away from the Alexandra Road Police Station last month and an 87-year-old woman who was attacked by a gardener,
who used a panga to hold her up, assault, suffocate and attempt to rape her in December 2017.
In that case the man allegedly gained entry through the back door of the home which the woman had left open to let her dog out. He then allegedly dragged the woman to the bedroom where he took off her underwear and tried to rape her.
When the assailant was unsuccessful, he locked her in the room and fl ed the scene towards Durban Road with the woman’s cellphone and house keys.
Alexandra Police Station spokesperson Kholeka Mhlongo said police were linking that attack to the most recent incident saying there were similar patterns in the attacks. Mhlongo confirmed a case of house robbery and rape was under investigation, and the case was transferred to the

Pietermaritzburg Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences unit. Ward 36 Councillor Vic Winterbach, said incidents of this nature should be condemned. “An attack of this nature needs to be condemned in the highest degree”.
