Gauteng police are offering a cash reward of R50 000 for information that could lead to the arrest and successful conviction of a man linked to 42 cases of rape.
The suspect is operating mostly in Orlando and Diepkloof, Soweto, where he accosts his victims, and demands money and cellphones before committing sexual assault.
The armed suspect targets his victims on the streets, in their homes, shops and entertainment areas, where he coerces them to secluded places.
The victims consist of females ranging from 14 to 53 years of age.
Police have mobilised maximum resources to search for the suspect, including offering an R50 000 cash reward to anyone who can urgently assist with information that could lead to the apprehension and prosecution of the alleged serial rapist, believed to be in his late 30s.
