Police spokesperson Colonel Priscilla Naidu said late Wednesday that the incident allegedly occurred at a house in Belmont. A 15 year old was sent inside the house to light a cigarette for one of the woman.

While doing so, a blanket and some clothing caught alight then the teenager was assaulted with a rake as well as sexually by the three women. “Two suspects aged 20 and 25 years old were arrested and charged for rape,” Naidu said. They appeared in court on Monday.

The third woman has not been arrested yet, while the other two remain in police custody and the case is remanded to 5 November for a formal bail application.
