Polokwane - A 15-year-old girl was abducted and repeatedly raped in an abandoned house in Louis Trichardt, Limpopo police said on Wednesday.

She was walking down Kleinhans Street on Sunday afternoon when the suspect grabbed her, gagged her, and dragged her into a nearby house, Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said.

She was held there for four days, during which she was drugged and repeatedly raped. On Wednesday morning, she escaped and a passerby found her, her hands bound behind her back, a gag in her mouth and unable to walk properly. She was bleeding.

She was taken to a local hospital. Anyone with information about the crime was asked to contact the local police.
