Mpumalanga police are appealing to the public to help them arrest two men and three women who allegedly forced a 20-year-old man to have a sex orgy with the three females.
The man was hitch-hiking along the Nelspruit road.
Police said the victim was coming from work going home in Block B near Tonga on Tuesday night when the incident took place.
Tonga police spokesman Constable Mzwandile Nyambi told Sowetan that the man got a lift from the suspects who were dressed smartly and formally.
They told him that they were heading towards his direction.
“It was too late for him to get taxis. He stopped a white Toyota Venture whose occupants, two men and three women, told him they were also going his way,” said Nyambi.
The driver of the vehicle then drove to the Riverside Mall in Nelspruit where the five spent almost an hour discussing unknown issues with the man.
The victim’s ordeal started near the Barberton road when the men pulled him out.
“After passing the Barberton road, the two men got out of the car, pointed a firearm at me and ordered me to have sex with the three women,” said the victim, who cannot be named.
