CAPE TOWN - Two men have been arrested for allegedly raping six girls in Keimoes between May 2012 and June 2013.

The victims are between the ages of nine and 14.

The suspects aged 56 and 61-years-old apparently lured the girls into their house and allegedly gave them glue to sniff before raping them.

Both men will appear in the local magistrate's court on Monday.

The police's Donald Mdhluli says, "We are looking for two more suspects in connection with these alleged rapes."

According to statistics a person is raped in South Africa every four minutes.

Earlier in 2013, government and non-governmental organisations called on men to be active in the fight against the rape scourge.

This followed the gang-rape, murder and mutilation of Anene Booysen in Bredasdorp in February.

She managed to name five of her attackers before she died in hospital.

However, one is on trial for the crime.

The suspect has admitted to raping Booysen but denies killing her.

The trial continues.
