Cape Town - Seven men accused of abducting and gang-raping a 13-year-old girl have been arrested, Western Cape police said on Wednesday.

Spokesperson Captain FC Van Wyk said they are on the hunt for another suspect following the arrest of the men, aged between 18 and 20, for Friday night's attack in Nyanga.

He said the girl had been walking alone on Robert Sobukwe Road at about 20:00 when she was abducted and taken to a shack where she was repeatedly raped by the man and his friends.

"They kept her at the residence and released her the next day," Van Wyk said. 

Investigations led to the apprehension of the gang and the seven are expected to appear in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Friday.
