Johannesburg - A Boksburg North couple were robbed at gunpoint and the wife raped several times by three men on Monday, East Rand police say.
The 22-year-old couple were walking along Main Reef Road in Whitfield at 19:30 when they "were threatened by three men who were armed with knives and a firearm," superintendent Andy Pieke said on Tuesday.
The attackers took the couple into the veld where they stripped the man and then took turns raping the woman.
Police believe the men fled to the nearby Angelo informal settlement with the husband's clothes as well as cash and jewellery.
No arrests have yet been made.
