North West 7 linked to more crimes

Johannesburg - A case against seven men accused of robbing a couple and raping the woman in Makwassie, near Wolmaransstad was postponed on Tuesday, North West police said.

They would appear again in the Wolmaransstad Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, said police spokesperson Amanda Funani.

"Our investigators had asked the court to postpone the case to Wednesday because they were still gathering more information... linking the men to other crimes, including robberies," she said.

A group of seven men, armed with knives, accosted the 27-year-old woman and her boyfriend shortly after they left a tavern on Saturday morning.

The men, aged between 18 and 21, took their cellphones.

They allegedly took the woman to a field where they raped her. Her boyfriend, who was left behind, ran to a police station.
