A 15-year-old girl was gang-raped while walking home from school in Meadowlands, Soweto, Gauteng police said today.

A black VW Golf pulled up alongside the girl on the street around 1pm yesterday, Captain Mpande Khoza said.

“The (three) occupants asked for directions. When the teenager said she did not know the place they were looking for, they dragged her into the car and drove away.”

Khoza said the men stopped at a nearby field, where they took turns raping the girl before driving away. Their car had no registration number.

No arrests have been made.
