Johannesberg Paramedic Raped on Call-out

A paramedic and her partner were called to a toddler with burns. Three armed men dragged the two ambulance workers in the the bushes, assaulted them and then stole their ambulance. From The Times:

Police spokeswoman Superintendent Noxolo Kweza said: “The two paramedics were called to Durban Deep in Roodepoort after a mother reported that her child was burnt by hot water.”

Kweza said the paramedics met the mother and two men outside the house and were led inside to attend to the child. While they were attending to the toddler, three armed men “threatened the two men outside the house who ran away to get help”.

She said that while the mother remained in the house with her child, the three attackers dragged the paramedics outside and into nearby bushes where one of the women was raped.
