A gang of women kidnapped a man and raped him for three days while force-feeding him energy drinks, police said.
The victim, 23, was found traumatized and exhausted after being dumped in a field semi-naked after his 72-hour ordeal, according to cops in South Africa.
Detectives investigating the case said the 23-year-old man had got into a 15-seater communal taxi with three young women.
Police spokesperson Captain Colette Wellback said: “En-route into town the driverchanged direction and the young man was told to get in the front.
“One of the women then allegedly injected him with an unknown substance and he passed out and woke up in an unfamiliar room in a single bed.
“The female suspects then allegedly forced the man to drink energy drinks before taking turns raping him numerous times every day for three days.”
The victim, from Nellmapius in Pretoria, South Africa, was dumped in a field in Benoni where he flagged down passing motorists who called police.
He got into the taxi three days previously to get a lift into Pretoria and told officers he had not been allowed to sleep and was only allowed to consume energy drinks.
The police said he lost count of the number of times he was raped.
Captain Wellback said: “The South African Police Service take all sexual offences seriously regardless of the gender of the victim involved.
“We assure all victims of these types of sexual crimes that we will carry out robust investigations to bring all the offenders to justice.”
Any other victims of the female rape gang have been asked to come forward.
Violent crime, including kidnap and rape, is rife in troubled South Africa.
Just yesterday it was reported that a student was allegedly raped, stabbed and strangled to death after she was abducted in a violent carjacking.
Hannah Cornelius, 21, and a friend were kidnapped on Friday night and cops found the student’s body near a farm in the Western Cape province of Stellenbosch the next morning.
Last year three women were arrested for luring a man to a house in Durban, South Africa, and raping him after locking the door and beating him.
The video went viral and it was only when the footage surfaced that it was reported.
In October 2015 a 31-year-old male hitchhiker was picked up by three women in a BMW who gave him a soft drink which had been spiked with Viagra.
He was raped by all three women in the car at gunpoint.
Reese Mann, director of the South African Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse, said nearly 20 per cent of all sexual violations reported to police were on men.
He said: “Male victims of sexual abuse are much less likely than their female counterparts to report sexual abuse because police don’t take it seriously.
“It is a widely accepted myth that if males get an erection during the sexual abuse they must have enjoyed it – but a man being raped can still be erect.”
Meanwhile, police is South Africa are urging any other victims of the female rape gang or any witnesses to come forward.
