Eastern Cape police are searching for 11 men who are said to have gang-raped a teenage girl. The incident took place in New Homes in the OR Tambo district on Friday.

"Police urges anyone who may have information that will lead to the arrest of 11 suspects," said Brig Tembinkosi Kinana. "The victim was accompanied by her friends, who visited her at her place, and as she returned home, she met four unknown men who grabbed her and dragged her to the nearby soccer field, where they all allegedly raped her and left her in the field."

 

As the four raped the 17-year-old, more men joined them.

"The four suspects were followed later by others in groups of four and three, who continued to rape the victim," Kinana said.

The police weren't sure if all the rapists knew each other.

"It is, however, not clear at this stage that this group of suspects ... This crime had been planned together. It is also unknown if they originate from the same location. The investigation is expected to uncover and unpack the truth and the motives behind this act, "he said.

 

Eastern Cape Police Commissioner Lt-Gen Liziwe Ntshinga condemned the incident and called on the officers to bring the perpetrators to their books.

No arrests were made.

“Anyone with information on this incident, should please contact D/Sgt Soyiso Sikhunyana on 079 890 0755 or our Crime Stop line on 08600 10111. Information will be treated confidentially, "said Kinana.
