Johannesburg - Three men have been arrested in Port Elizabeth in connection with the rape of a woman, Motherwell police said on Monday.

"Five men grabbed the 19-year-old in the early hours of Saturday morning when she was walking home with her boyfriend," Warrant Officer Dumile Gwavu said.

"They took her to Ramaphosa village and three men raped her."

Gwavu said the other two men then took her to Chris Hani, a nearby shack area, and also raped her.

Three of the men were arrested and would appear in the New Brighton Magistrate's Court on Tuesday. The other two were still on the run.
