Two women gang-raped in George
According to police one woman was gang-raped by three men while another was raped by six.
CAPE TOWN - Southern Cape police said on Sunday they hope to make a breakthrough following two alleged gang-rapes in George.
In the first incident a woman was sexually assaulted by three men on her way home from a tavern in the Thembalethu township a week ago.
She was stabbed and mugged.
In the second incident a woman, also from the Thembalethu township, was gang-raped by six men.
Her boyfriend was assaulted and the couple's car was set alight.
Southern Cape police's Malcolm Pojie says it is unclear whether the incidents are linked.
"In both of the incidents there are no clear descriptions of the suspects. But we will do everything in our power to get to them."
