A 37-year-old Hammanskraal man will know his fate on Wednesday in connection with eight charges of rape.
The man allegedly targeted women crossing the Babelegi bridge alone between 2006 and 2014, said Hammanskraal police spokesperson Constable Herman Moremi.
“He attacked and raped women between the ages of 14 and 40. He would pounce on them as they were using the shortcut,” he said.
