Woman ‘dragged into park by three men, raped and burned alive’ in sex attack

Three sick blokes allegedly dragged a woman into a park and raped her before burning her alive, in a sinister sex attack in South Africa.

The depressing incident took place around 8pm on Friday (October 7) when the 34-year-old was taken to a park in Roodepan, Kimberley.

Reports suggested that after she was raped in Lethabo Park, she was doused with paraffin and set alight, in what authorities described as a possible "hate crime".

The woman was found with severe burns by shocked neighbours, before being rushed to hospital where she succumbed to her injuries on Sunday, October 9.

Her death was confirmed by police, who added that they are still on the hunt for the perpatrators.

Thabo Mothibi, spokesman for the African National Congress in the Northern Cape, said: "As investigations by the police continue, information received points to a possible hate crime motive."

Women in the area are now living in fear, according to localised reports.

One local told SABC News: "We don’t have much here but that something could happen to a woman like that, it’s very sad.
