Ekurhuleni Central Cluster spokesperson Capt Nomsa Sekele said police received information about a man being wanted for a rape case in Putfontein in August 2017.

Police searched for the suspect who was later arrested.

The man was arrested and detained at the Benoni SAPS on a charge of rape.

Police have been searching for a rapist in Benoni for several months, but Sekele could not confirm if this suspect was linked to the other cases.
