THREE men were arrested yesterday for armed robbery and rape, Gauteng police said.

The three, aged 16 to 29, were arrested in Soshanguve after one of them was identified by their female victim on Tuesday. He led police to the other two, said Captain Solly Marimbi.

They are accused of forcing the woman and her boyfriend into the bush at gunpoint on June 22. They tied up the man and robbed the couple of their cellphones and watches. They then raped the woman.

They will appear in the Soshanguve magistrate's court soon. - Sapa
