Woman tied to a tree and gang raped

A woman from Bloemfontein was tied to a tree and three men took turns to rape her, said the Free State police.

Const. Peter Kareli, police spokesman, said on Wednesday the 24-year-old woman went on her way to her sister’s school along the N8 when she was stopped by three men. The men threatened her with a knife, and dragged her into nearby fields.

The men allegedly assaulted her after they took off her clothes and gang-raped her. A passerby apparently saw what happened and called the police. Two of the men had already fled when the police arrived on the scene. The other man was caught red-handed, where he was busy raping the woman.

“The victim was tied naked to a tree and had bruises all over her body,” said Kareli. The suspect tried to flee and crept in to a storm water drain. Police officers chased him and arrested him. The other two suspects were arrested on Thursday.

The suspects will soon appear in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court.
