Durban - Police have launched a manhunt for a group of 11 men who allegedly raped a 17-year-old girl at the New Homes location in the OR Tambo District last Friday.
According to Brigadier Tembinkosi Kinana, the girl had walked her friends home and was en route to her own home when she was accosted by four men who allegedly grabbed her and dragged her to a nearby soccer field.
