Mother of two raped in brutal farm attack near Pretoria

The woman, who has young children, was raped as her co-workers were assaulted by their attackers.

A community in the north of Pretoria was shocked on Wednesday by the brutal rape of a mother of two young children during a farm attack.

The attack happened in Honingnestkrans near Onderstepoort and Hammanskraal in the early hours of Wednesday morning, reports the Pretoria North Rekord.

The woman and two men who work at the farm were also assaulted with bolt cutters and hammers by the group of armed attackers.

“Around 01:00, three men attacked my workers on the farm,” farm owner Wayne Alberts told the Rekord.

Alberts said the attackers gained entrance to his property by cutting through the fence in Hoep-hoep Street.

“They didn’t come right to the main house, but attacked my employees in another house on the farm,” said Alberts. “They broke down the doors and overpowered the two men and the woman.”

Alberts said the two men were assaulted as one of the suspects raped the woman.
