Cop arrested for raping teen boys
A warrant officer has been arrested after allegedly raping two teen boys on a number of occasions.
CAPE TOWN - A Bellville police officer has been arrested for allegedly raping two teenage boys in Cape Town.
The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) is currently investigating the matter.
The warrant officer was arrested on Wednesday after he allegedly raped and sexually assaulted the 14-year-old boys on a number of occasions between 2010 and 2014.
The IPID's Grace Langa says some of the incidents took place inside the toilet of the Bellville police station.
It's alleged he also gave them between R50 and R200 to keep them from reporting the crime.
"The allegations say the suspect on many occasions raped them and performed oral sex. Some of the incidents took place in the toilets of the police station where the officer was stationed. He showed them pornographic videos at his house as well."
The officer was rushed to hospital shortly after his arrest, because he apparently tried to commit suicide while in custody in Kraaifontein.
He's expected to appear in the Blue Downs Magistrates Court on Friday.
