Police in Mankweng, Limpopo, were searching on Monday for the culprits in a number of rape crimes in their area, including an attack on an 80-year-old woman.

Constable Moses Molepo said the elderly woman from Ga-Molepo was attacked in her house around 9am while she was asleep last Tuesday.

A man broke her window and demanded money, then raped her and ran away.

She has already been to the Mankweng Hospital and police need help with any information that will help them find her attacker.

On Thursday, an 18-year-old woman was attacked while walking between Ga-Thoka and Mankweng unit C with her boyfriend around 10pm.

The couple were robbed and she was raped in front of her boyfriend.

The day before that, on the Wednesday, a 20-year-old woman was raped between Mankweng and Magoebaskloof.

The woman had hitched a lift with a motorist she did not know and en-route the driver demanded sex from her.

Molepo said the woman refused but then the driver threatened to kill her and she was raped in bushes.

She was unable to note the registration number. - Sapa
