JOHANNESBURG - Three women have been rescued from a house in Cresta, north-west of Johannesburg.

It’s understood the trio had been kidnapped and tortured by eight men.

It’s not yet clear when the women were taken or what condition they’re in.

The police’s Kay Makhubela says the suspects will appear in court soon on charges of kidnapping, torture and the possession of unlicensed fire arms.

“At the moment we have arrested the eight men and the three ladies were taken to hospital for treatment because they were seriously injured.”
