Johannesburg - Two men are being sought after a woman was raped and robbed in George, Western Cape police said on Tuesday.

"The 36-year-old woman was doing her washing in the backyard of her home at around 14:30 on Monday," Captain Malcolm Pojie said.

"When she went back to the house she found two men inside, a coloured and black man. They threatened her verbally and demanded cash. While one of the suspects ransacked the house looking for [valuables], the other raped the victim."

The men took R2 000 before fleeing the scene.

They were believed to have gained entry through an open door.

Police were offering a reward, and anyone with information should call 044-803-4638 or 086-846-3633.
