A boy was raped by three teenagers and their act was caught on surveillance video.

The three teenagers were arrested in connection with the sexual offense against the 10-year-old child.

The teens did not act alone. Police said that a 20-year-old man led them upstairs to a room at a church in Lenasia, South Africa.

Officer Kay Makhubela of the Gauteng police force said that the crime occurred during a prayer service, when three teenagers and the 20 year old, took the child away from the congregation and led him to the room upstairs.

Unbeknownst to the suspect, the crime was captured on the security surveillance system of the church. Later that day, an elder of the church reviewed the CCTV footage and discovered the crime.

The matter was reported to the police, who apprehended the teens. The suspects are said to be 13, 14 and 15 years old.

Police are still looking for the 20 year old, who is also expected to be charged for the incident, Makhubela said. The teenagers, who were not named because of their ages, will be brought before a judge and will be charged as minors.
