An unnamed teacher was reportedly kidnapped and gang raped by her former students, in a rural community in South Africa.
The incident led to the arrest of two men aged 18 and 20, and believed to be part of a group of men who tied her up with a rope before loading her into the boot of her VW Polo. The teacher who was kidnapped and gang raped by her former students at a high school near Marken, Limpopo, South Africa, was abducted from her home on Monday while she was sleeping.
The suspects who were ‘well known to the victim’ as previous students and neighbors, dumped her in the bush and fled with her car after the incident. A police spokesperson who confirmed the incident, said the teacher was dumped in the bushes along Bakenburg outside Mokopane.
The teacher was reportedly rushed to the hospital and discharged on Sunday afternoon, while one one of the men was found in possession of the key to the teacher’s car which was later found abandoned in the bushes near Marken.
‘Preliminary police investigations have since revealed that the two suspects involved in this chain of crime incidents are well known to the victim as she previously taught them at the same school and they are also staying in this village,’ said police spokesperson Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.
‘During the arrest, one of the suspects was found in possession of the ignition keys of the victim’s car and later, the victim’s car was found abandoned in bushes near Marken,’ Ngoepe added.
‘It was also detected that the suspects made turns in gang-raping the victim and dumped her still tied in the bushes before they fled the scene with her motor vehicle VW Polo. Police opened cases of house breaking with intent to commit crime, kidnapping, armed robbery and rape’.
