8th suspect held for gang rape video

2012-04-18 14:38
Johannesburg - A man was arrested on Wednesday for abducting the 17-year-old who was gang-raped in a video that went viral.

The man could also be charged with rape. This brings to eight the number of people arrested for attacking the girl.

The 17-year-old has also been found and is at the Dobsonville police station.

"She was found with [the arrested] man in his house in... Braamfischerville, said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubele.

He said it appeared that the girl had been kept against her will.

The girl was en route to the Dobsonville police station just before 13:00 and then to see a doctor.

"Obviously she is traumatised and we are going to take her to the doctor now," said Makhubele.

On Tuesday seven people - including two minors - were arrested in Dobsonville after they matched the description of the boys and men in the video.

Meanwhile, Gauteng Community Safety MEC Faith Mazibuko said police were looking for more suspects, EWN reported.

The girl went missing in Soweto on March 25 and was raped last week.
