Boys videotape horrific gang rape

2012-04-18 08:10
Johannesburg - A shocking video has emerged in which seven boys gang rape a 17-year-old girl in Soweto.

Eyewitness News reported that the boys, who were between 14 and 20, were arrested on Tuesday.

The video was made on a cellphone and is about 10 minutes long.

The girl could clearly be heard to be crying and pleading with her attackers, who repeatedly rape her. 

The boys apparently offered her R2 to keep quiet.

The video showed several acts of penetration as well as the boys joking around and encouraging each other while talking about whether the victim was crying or not.

A police spokesperson said the girl had gone missing three weeks ago, and is still missing. She was apparently left with an elderly taxi driver in Dobsonville.

It was believed that she had been kidnapped by the boys and kept as a sex slave.
