Case against suspected UCT serial rapist to resume today
Patrick Hlomane is believed to be behind the attacks on at least three women since last November.
CAPE TOWN - The case against a suspected serial rapist, who operated near Rhodes Memorial, is set to resume in the Wynberg Magistrates court today.
Thirty-five-year-old Patrick Hlomane is believed to be behind the attacks on at least three women in the vicinity of the heritage site since last November.
He has been charged with rape, attempted murder and kidnapping.
The matter was postponed for six weeks to allow prosecutors time to prepare an indictment for the Western Cape High Court.
Today the state is also expected to determine whether Patrick Hlomane will face additional rape charges for other attacks that took place near the University of Cape Town campus.
The court previously heard that Hlomane evaded arrest for several months by using various aliases.
He was arrested in his hideout on the slopes of Table Mountain near Rhodes Memorial in March.
