The case against a man accused of a series of rapes near the University of Cape Town (UCT) has been postponed for another two weeks.
Patrick Hlomane made an appearance in the Western Cape High Court today for a pre-trial hearing, reports EWN's Xolani Koyana.
Hlomane has been charged in connection with attacks on at least three women near Rhodes Memorial between November 2015 and January this year.
He is facing three counts of rape, attempted murder and kidnapping charges.
While the investigation into the suspect is still ongoing, police say his charge sheet may expand.

Koyana says the State and the defence were expected to discuss the outstanding matters in the case but Hlomane’s lawyer was not present in court.
According to Koyana, the defence team has also not been furnished with a docket to adequately prepare.
The case will be back in the High Court Friday on 28th October.
