Two 17-year-old boys were arrested and charged. The victim’s 20-year-old sister said that the victim was fighting for her life at Witbank Hospital after being stabbed more than 20 times in the stomach, face and eyes.
The sister of the victim said that one of the suspects lured her sister from her home to nearby bushes, where she was stabbed and raped.
The victim knew the suspect. When the teens were done with raping the girl, they allegedly wanted to kill her. After being stabbed the teen lost consciousness.
