A woman was purportedly raped in front of her horrified boyfriend by an armed gang who then tied him up and threw him into a lake where he drowned. Another couple with them were also attacked and the man bound and drowned in the lake alongside his friend. The friends were taking a walk in Rhodes Park, Kensington, near Johannesburg, South Africa , around 9pm local time on Saturday when they were attacked by the all-male gang. One of the women managed to escape, but the other was captured and raped by a gang member in front of her tied-up boyfriend, according to South African media reports .
After the sickening ordeal, the men, aged 25 and 32, were thrown into the dam at the park and drowned. One of the attackers is said to have been carrying a knife, while another had a firearm. South Africa Police Service spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini said the bodies of the two drowned men were recovered by police divers in the early hours of Sunday morning.
