Johannesburg - A man and his friend who both allegedly raped the man's 18-year-old sister appeared in the Butterworth Magistrate's Court on Thursday, Eastern Cape police said.

They remained in custody and would be back in court on January 14, Captain Jackson Manatha said.

The 24-year-old brother was arrested on Wednesday and his 29-year-old friend was taken into custody on Tuesday.

They allegedly raped the teen on Sunday.

"The teenage girl was invited by her brother [to] his room at Ceru Location Dyushu Village in Butterworth... Consequently, an incident of incest then ensue[d] as he accosted and raped her," he said.

"We think this was a plan because after he [the brother] finished his friend came in and raped her also."

Meanwhile, Limpopo police were looking for a man who allegedly raped an elderly woman in Ga-Molepo, in the Bethel area, Limpopo police said.

Constable Moses Molepo said the woman, 73, was asleep when the man entered her house through a window on Tuesday night.

Molepo said she was strangled before she was raped. She went to a local police station where she reported the matter.

She was then taken to Mankweng Hospital.

He said the woman was alone in the house when the crime was committed.

Police have launched a manhunt for the man aged between 20 and 40.
