Accused rape cabbie held in custody

A taxi driver accused of raping a wheelchair-bound passenger has made a brief appearance in court charged with sexually assaulting two other women.

Peter Edward Kasatchkow, 68, appeared in Perth Magistrate's Court charged with 12 offences relating to the two new alleged victims.

Mr Kasatchkow was charged earlier this year with sexually assaulting and raping a woman, aged in her 20s, who had cerebral palsy.

After a further investigation by the police sex assault squad, Mr Kasatchkow was charged with 12 more offences against two other women.

Police said both women - one aged in her 30s and the other in her 50s - were wheelchair bound and were allegedly sexually assaulted on separate taxi journeys in January and February.

Mr Kasatchkow, who is facing 12 charges of indecently dealing with an incapable person, three charges of aggravated sexual penetration without consent and one charge of aggravated indecent assault, did not apply for bail during his brief court appearance this morning.

He has been remanded in custody to face court again next month.
