SA’s third hospital rape in 3 months

The man who walked into a North West hospital and allegedly raped a patient briefly appeared in the Mmabatho Magistrate's Court, North West police said on Thursday.

“The 29-year-old suspect appeared in court on Wednesday on a charge of rape,” spokesman Lt-Col Lesego Metsi said.

He apparently entered the Mahikeng Provincial Hospital around 3pm on Christmas day pretending to be visiting a patient in the women's ward. There were three women in the room.

“After realizing that the other two patients were in a critical condition and could not speak nor scream, the suspect approached the third patient, a 22-year-old female and allegedly raped her.”
