Bloemfontein – A manhunt has been launched for the men who allegedly kidnapped and gang-raped two teenage girls in two separate incidents this week, Free State police said on Wednesday.

The girls, aged 14 and 15, were gang-raped on Sunday and Monday, police spokesperson Sergeant Mmako Mophiring said.    

On Sunday night, four men in a blue Toyota bakkie allegedly abducted the 15-year-old while she was on her way home from a filling station in QwaQwa.  

She was taken to a house where she was forced to take tablets, raped and held overnight. Her attackers instructed her to take a bath.  She was left on the streets on Monday morning.

On Monday, a 14-year-old girl from Intabazwe, near Harrismith, was kidnapped, blindfolded and forced into a bakkie while on her way to school.

She was raped in the moving bakkie. She was taken to a house where three other men raped her. Afterwards, a woman who was in the house instructed her to take a bath.

Cases of kidnapping and rape were opened. No arrests had been made. 

Last week, six men were arrested after they allegedly raped two girls and left them at a hiking spot in Bloemfontein in February.
