On her way to Moitaka Ridge she was sexually assaulted by a group of men who were under the influence of liquor.
The five suspects who are now in police custody were accused of sexually assaulting the victim on the early hours of last Saturday morning.
They were handed over to police after a group of police officers entered Moitaka Ridge and burned down few houses following reports of the sexual assault.
The Nine Mile Clinic which is located in the community affected has since remained closed since the weekend.
NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Perou N’Dranou has confirmed the surrender of some suspects who are now in police custody.
