MOSSELBAY NEWS - The twenty-seven-year old man who has been charged with raping a woman in a covid-19 self-isolation facility will know if his bail application gets granted on the 5th of October.
The suspect appeared in the Mossel Bay Magistrates Court yesterday and asked the court to grant him bail for the duration of the trial.
He worked as a cleaner at the facility in Mossel Bay and was arrested earlier this month. The twenty-year-old victim alleges that the suspect overpowered her in a bedroom at the facility while she was in self-isolation.
The National Prosecuting Authority opposed his bail application.

The case was investigated by Warrant Officer Tata Marks from the Mossel Bay family violence and child protection unit.
