Exchange student raped on Signal Hill

A Norwegian exchange student was raped on Signal Hill in Cape Town at the weekend, it was reported on Tuesday.
"It was about 1am [on Saturday]. The woman and her boyfriend were in their car when they were approached by two armed men who tied up the woman's boyfriend," police spokesperson Andre Traut told The Cape Times.

He said the men took their personal belongings and then raped the woman.
They then drove the couple to Camps Bay, where they left them in the car.
No arrests had been made and the two were helping to formulate identikits of the men. A case of robbery and rape was being investigated.
Table Mountain Watch spokesperson Andre van Zyl told the newspaper that this attack was the first of its kind in two years.
"There have been other attacks, but on hikers... This is a serious incident and very unusual from the break-in of cars now and then," he said.
A city attempt to have the road closed at 10pm had proven unpopular, he said.
