CAPE TOWN - Seven suspects have been taken into custody in connection with the rape of a 13-year-old girl in Nyanga.

Police are still hunting for an eighth suspect.

The teenager was abducted and raped last weekend before being released by her attackers.

The police's Frederick van Wyk says: “The victim was walking alone in Robert Sobukwe Road in Nyanga, when she was abducted by a suspect and taken to a shack where she was repeatedly raped by him and his friends. They kept her at the residence and released her the next day.”

The group is expected to appear in the Wynberg Magistrates Court on Friday.
