THE rape case of entertainer Elephant Man was on Monday transferred to the Home Circuit Court where he will eventually be tried.


The artiste, whose real name is Oniel Bryan, had his $400,000-bail extended until October 25 by which time relevant documents in the case are to be served on his legal team.


The case was transferred to the Home Circuit Court following a preliminary enquiry in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.


The 36-year-old artiste - who was on Monday dressed in a black jacket and black jeans and sporting his signature orange and yellow hairdo -- is charged with rape and sexual assault as a result of an alleged January 2012 incident involving a 31-year-old woman at his Hillcrest Avenue home in St Andrew.
