The alleged Dros rapist is having an ordeal trying to find bed space in a psychiatric hospital

It was recommended that the accused be  evaluated to determine whether he could be held accountable for raping a 7-year-old girl in the bathroom of a Dros restaurant in Pretoria in September.

The man is expected back in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.

There are speculations that the case is likely to be postponed owing to the shortage of beds at Weskoppies. The man is meant to be admitted for 30 days’ observation but is reportedly still on a waiting list.

During his previous court appearance on November 1, the court granted an application brought by the State and the defence to have the 20-year-old accused referred for mental observation.
