Polokwane - Police are looking for two women who allegedly raped a man after forcing him to drink a "certain substance" near Tzaneen, Limpopo police said on Sunday.

It is alleged that at about 7.45am on Saturday morning "two middle-aged women" travelling in a sedan from Polokwane to Tzaneen gave the 25-year-old victim a lift at a Polokwane hiking spot. They drove into bushes in Makgoebaskloof, where they pointed firearms at him and forced him to drink a "certain substance" and subsequently took turns raping him, Lt-Col Moatshe Ngoepe said.

According to Ngoepe, the women then continued their journey with their victim who they subsequently left at "a secluded area near the Tzaneen CBD from where he proceeded to the police station and reported this matter." 

The preliminary information revealed that the suspects were travelling in a Toyota Tazz with Limpopo registration plates. The suspects are still unknown and no arrests have been made.
