A three-year-old Free State girl has been gang-raped and stabbed multiple times by three teenagers after she was left home alone by her mother.
The incident occurred on Monday when the girl’s mother abandoned the toddler to go to a tavern in Sakanyoka. While she was out, the three suspects entered the house, kidnapped the young girl and took her to an industrial area in Thaba Nchu. The trio then raped the girl, stabbed her multiple times and, believing that she was dead, left her in a stretch of veld. The toddler was discovered that evening by a resident in the area, in a pool of blood, and was taken to Pelonomi Medi-Clinic, where she remains in a critical condition.
Police spokesperson, Constable Consolation Mokoale, said that they had received a tip-off shortly after the incident, which led to the arrest of the three boys, aged between 15 and 18.
