Sex-starved Cleaner rapes patient at COVID-19 quarantine facility

He’s accused of sexually assaulting a woman at the provincial Transport and Public Works Department’s quarantine facility in Mossel Bay.

OVID-19 quarantine and isolation facilities are meant to be safe spaces where people can recover but this was not the case for a 20-year-old woman in Mossel Bay.

A cleaner at the facility was arrested for her rape on Friday.

 

 

He appeared in court on Monday and has been remanded in custody.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said that 27-year-old Clinton Hartnick will apply for bail next Monday.

The State intends opposing his bid for bail.
