Westonaria Police are looking for three men who allegedly raped a 28-year-old woman recently.

On 28 July, the victim told police that she was on her way to Borwa in Westonaria when she was approached by the men. They then robbed her of her money and cellphone.

“The suspects then dragged her to a nearby field where they took turns raping her. They fled when they heard people approaching. The victim was assisted by people who took her to the police station where a case of rape was opened,” said Warrant Officer Raymond Sebonyane, Westonaria Police spokesperson.
