Six teen boys from Parkwood have been arrested after they were caught brutally gang raping a mentally ill Southfield woman.

According to Cape Flats Stories’ Facebook page, the boys were caught redhanded.

The teens are reportedly aged between 13 and 16 years old, and were caught by armed response officers who noticed them running along a railway line. The woman was found face-down in sand as she was being raped.

Members of the Southfield community were shocked to hear of the incident.

“This is absolutely sickening,” one community members commented.

“Animals don’t gang rape – period. These despicable excuses are acting on primal instinct, this is what humans do. It is time we accept that humans are the most vile creatures imaginable. Just because we have a brain and walk on 2 legs does not make us ethical, moral beings,” another said.
