Durban - An 18-year-old-girl, who was on holiday in KwaZulu-Natal, was raped in front of her younger brother at a Richards Bay beach.

This is the fourth attack at Alkantstrand Beach in the last four months, the Independent on Saturday reported.

In the latest attack, the two teenagers were walking on the beach at about 02:00 on Saturday when two knife-wielding men approached them.

The men robbed the teenagers and raped the young woman in front of her brother.

No arrests have been made but police are confident they will nab the suspects soon as the teenagers gave them descriptions of the men.
Police say they will increase police visibility on the beach over the festive season.
