The man first appeared in court on Monday and returned on Friday for a formal bail application.

Police said the accused was arrested after they were called to the scene last week after a woman was heard screaming from a flat in a township in Alexandria.

Police spokesperson Mali Govender said the woman was brutally injured and was rushed to the hospital.

The suspect was immediately arrested and taken into custody.

The 18-year-old victim is currently in the hospital fighting for her life in intensive care.

“He is facing a charge of attempted murder and the victim is in a critical condition at a hospital in Port Elizabeth.”

“We are still in contact with the family and the hospital as well,” Govender said.
