Cape Town - Two men have appeared in the Khayelitsha Magistrate's Court for raping a mentally disabled teenager, The Daily Voice reported on Tuesday.

The case against the men, aged 27, and 29, was postponed until next Tuesday for bail information, the newspaper reported.

The 15-year-old girl was reportedly playing outside her home on Thursday when she was lured to a shack with the promise of money.

According to The Daily Voice, she was abused for two hours before escaping.

It reported that the community found the men, beat them with sticks and fists, and handed them over to the police, within 24 hours.

The child's mother told the newspaper her daughter's epileptic fits had increased since the attack.
