A 19-year-old man has been arrested after falling asleep following the rape of his victim - a woman in a flat in Johannesburg, Gauteng police said on Monday.

Warrant Officer Xoli Mbele said the woman, 30, met the man she knew on Saturday at 2am, after she returned from a tavern.

"He forcefully took her to his flat where he raped her. He fell asleep and the victim ran to a police station," he said.

He said the police found him still asleep and he was arrested.

He was expected to appear in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.
