A man had his testicles cut off following an alleged gang rape of two minors in an informal settlement in Ivory Park in Midrand, Johannesburg. When two girls, aged 14 and 18, complained about the incident, an angry mob tracked down three suspected men, captured one of them and killed him right on the scene. Two others managed to escape.
The incident was reported late on Saturday night by Gauteng police officials.
According to their statement, the local residents who carried out the ‘execution’ also attempted to seize two other men but failed. The police are searching for two suspects following the leads to arrest them.
Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said on Sunday that a case of premeditated murder had been initiated following the death of the alleged rapist. No arrests have been reported since then.
The local residents alleged that three men confronted two girls walking to Lindokuhle informal settlement. The girls were threatened with a knife and a firearm and then raped.
”A member of the public who saw the incident alerted the community who came out and confronted the alleged rapists. Two of the suspects managed to escape and the other was caught and allegedly killed by members of the community at the scene,” Dlamini said.
