Two men have been arrested by the police officers for allegedly raping two women. One more suspect is on the run.
According to Jeppe SAPS spokesperson Cpt Richard Munyayi, the incident happened when the women were travelling to the Joburg CBD.
“A woman in her 30s had taken a taxi travelling to the Joburg CBD. When the woman boarded, she found five men and one other woman inside,”Munyayi stated.
The driver drove to the George Goch Men’s Hostel instead of the first destination. As they stopped in an open space near the intersection of Vickers and Main Reef roads, two men left the car.
The women were raped by three perpetrators who had stayed on board.
“The women were given R24 after they had been raped and dropped off under a bridge at an unknown location. They came to the police station to open a case and police immediately went out to look for the taxi, a white Toyota Quantum,” Munyayi explained.
The police urge anyone possessing the information that can lead to the arrest of the third suspect to contact them.
