The six teenage boys arrested for the rape of a 30-year-old woman who has a mental disorder have been released into their parents' care. According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), the case was not put on the court roll.

 

Western Cape NPA spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said the charges would be finalized upon completion of the investigation.

"At present, the boys have been released to the care of their parents and will be summoned to appear before the court when that need arises," Ntabazalila said.

 

The boys—13 to 16 years of age — were apprehended in Southfield, Cape Town, on Friday by members of the Armed Response Forces. The members of the armed response were chasing three of the boys who allegedly tried to flee. Ntabazalila said that the incident had taken place in the jurisdiction of the Wynberg Magistrate's Court and that the boys would appear there. The date of the court will be revealed by the NPA as soon as it is known.
