The victim, 13, was snatched off the street before being gang-raped by eight men.

Seven suspects are due to appear in court regarding the kidnapping and rape of a 13-year-old girl.

Police spokesman Captain FC van Wyk says: “Investigation into the abduction and rape of a 13-year-old girl led to the swift arrest of seven of the suspects while one is still being sought.

“On Friday, at about 20:00, the victim was walking alone in Robert Sobukwe Road, Nyanga, when she was abducted by a suspect and taken to a shack where she was repeatedly rape by him and his friends. They kept her at the residence and released her the next day.

Van Wyk says the suspects aged between 18 to 20 years will appear in Wynberg Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
