A 22-year-old man was arrested in the early hours of yesterday morning after he allegedly raped a 29-year-old woman and then fell asleep.

Police spokesperson, Captain Jackson Manatha, said: “The boyfriend was chased away and the suspect allegedly dragged the victim to his home where the alleged rape took place.”

When the suspect fell asleep the victim fled to a nearby homestead to raise the alarm.
