Girl raped by seven men

A 16-year-old girl was raped in two separate incidents by seven men in Ivory Park on Friday night, Gauteng police said.

Constable Neldah Hlase said the girl was heading home from a party in Extension 7 in the early hours of the morning when two men approached her, covered her face with a T-shirt, and took her to a bridge in the area.

“On arrival there they threatened her with a knife and both of them allegedly raped her without any protection and fled the scene.”

Hlase said the girl decided to walk home after the incident, but on her way she came across four men assaulting another man.

He said they tied her up with the man they were assaulting.

They raped her and ran away, leaving her tied to the man.

After a few minutes one of the rapists returned and untied the pair.

“He came back, untied them and informed them that his friends are planning to kill them.”

Hlase said Ivory Park police appealed to the youth, especially girls, to take care during the festive season.

He said about six rape cases were opened over the past weekend and all the victims were aged between 16 and 20 years and were returning from shebeens and parties.
