The Mr D Food delivery man accused of trying to rape a Wynberg woman has been sent to Pollsmoor Prison.
Cassiem Imani, 43, made his first appearance at Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday morning after being arrested in Plumstead on Monday.
In her statement to police on Friday, the 26-year-old victim told cops she had ordered food from Spur which was delivered by Imani.
She told officers that while paying, he told her she was beautiful and he loved her before allegedly pushing her against a wall.
“She fell to the ground and he penetrated her vagina. His pants were open, but she does not know how he did it,” said the police source.
The woman hit her attacker with a bowl and ran to the study where she pushed a couch against the door to keep him from coming in and called for help.
At the time police confirmed they were investigating a rape case and Mr D Food suspended the driver.
During his appearance it was revealed that he was charged with attempted rape. The case was postponed to 17 July for a bail information hearing.
