The man, who cannot be named, appeared briefly at Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court on Monday where he was remanded in custody at Johannesburg prison.

The defence has requested that the man, believed to be in his twenties, be held at the police station rather than in prison but this was rejected by the judge when they failed to get a letter agreeing to this from the police chief at Parkview police station.

He is accused of attacking the teenager in a restaurant bathroom on 7th August.
