Cops arrested for rape

Johannesburg - Three men, including two policemen, have been arrested for rape in Nelspoort, police said on Wednesday.

The three men, aged between 23 and 33, were arrested on Tuesday, Captain Malcolm Pojie said.

They allegedly raped and abused four girls, aged between 14 and 18, between January last year and April this year.

"It is alleged that the accused performed sexual acts with the victims over a period of time without their consent."

The two policemen were based at the Nelspoort police station. Pojie said more arrests would be made as police believed other people were involved.

A disciplinary investigation had begun.

"We cannot and will not tolerate, nor allow our members to be involved in crime," said provincial commissioner Lieutenant General Arno Lamoer.

The three men would appear in the Beaufort West Magistrate's Court on Thursday on charges of rape, statutory rape and sexual exploitation.
