Johannesburg - Seven men kidnapped a 22-year-old woman from her house in Zola, Soweto, on Tuesday, Gauteng police said.

The armed men broke into the house at 2am on Tuesday morning and kidnapped her, said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela.

Her brother, who lives with her, saw the men drive off with her in a white Toyota Quantum but was unable to check the vehicle's registration number.

Her family opened a case of kidnapping soon afterwards, said Makhubela.

The woman's brother was not harmed and nothing was stolen from the house. - Sapa
