A man believed to be the “Facebook rapist” is expected to appear in Durban Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
The man — best known as “Thomas Bester”, one of his numerous aliases –was arrested last Wednesday in the Alberton area.
He allegedly sent women e-mails saying international modelling scouts were interested in them.
He also allegedly targeted women by meeting them in person, then befriending them on Facebook.
He is suspected of having committed a string of crimes in Cape Town, Durban and Gauteng, including the murder of a model in Milnerton last month.
“Bester” was expected to face charges including at least one count of murder, several counts of rape, kidnapping, and theft. — Sapa
