R1000 bail for cop accused of girl’s rape

A PORT Elizabeth policeman who allegedly raped a 14- year-old girl repeatedly for several hours was granted bail of R1000 yesterday.

The 46-year-old railway police unit warrant officer was also ordered not to have any contact with the complainant, who had lived with him and his wife in KwaDwesi following the death of her mother. The couple were appointed her legal guardians.
