Some of the victims were lured from Wick Street in Verulam to the abandoned church yard after they were promised sexual intercourse & oral sex. The men are then approached by drug users who wait in a makeshift home nearby. The victims are then robbed at knifepoint & assaulted.
Other victims are approached by the two females & robbed. The woman recently forcefully removed R1000 in cash from a pensioner after they accused him of failing to pay for sexual services. The woman removed the cash from his pocket and fled.
