Johannesburg – One of two men who allegedly raped a 25-year-old woman in Marshalltown, Johannesburg, has been arrested, police said on Thursday.

He was expected to appear in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court soon, Warrant Officer Xoli Mbele said.

The woman and her boyfriend had gone to visit one of his friends in a flat on Wednesday. The friend was not there, but they entered his room. Another resident in the flat arrived and threatened the couple with a knife and chased the boyfriend out.

Another occupant of the flat then arrived and both men allegedly raped the woman.
