Johannesburg - A man and a boy who allegedly assaulted and raped a female doctor in a Bloemfontein hospital were arrested on Saturday, Free State police said.

The 16-year-old boy, his 24-year-old accomplice and another man, allegedly overpowered the doctor at Pelonomi Private Hospital in the early hours of Saturday morning, Captain Rulene Kuhn said.

One of the men hit the 35-year-old doctor on the head with a brick and proceeded to rape her in a ward that was being renovated.

The group fled but police arrested the two men after following up leads.

They will appear in Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court on Monday.
