A 53-year-old woman was raped and robbed at a graveyard in Botshabelo, outside Bloemfontein, Free State police said on Thursday.
The incident happened on Wednesday afternoon after she had visited the graveyard, said police spokesperson Sergeant Sinah Mpakane.
Mpakane said the woman was about to leave when two men, aged 20 and 25, approached her and threatened her with a knife.
The men allegedly pepper sprayed her in the face, before taking turns raping her.
The two fled the scene with her cellphone. No arrests have yet been made.
