SECUNDA- A 17-year-old school girl from Hoerskool Secunda was raped last Tuesday.
She was walking home from Highveld Ridge Primary School where her brother is a pupil.
In the green strips next to Highveld Ridge Primary School, a man approached her and pulled a knife out.
He asked for money and her cellphone and then raped her.
He has not yet been arrested.
Secunda Police warned school children to walk in groups.
"It is dangerous to walk alone in the green strips, because criminals hide in the long grass," said Capt Busaphi Sibanyoni, Secunda Polise spokesman.
