Two men who allegedly raped and assaulted a Port Elizabeth university student before leaving her for dead in the bushes are still on the run.

The second-year NMMU student, 24, was raped, beaten with a pole and left for dead in bushes near Schoenmakerskop over a week ago in an ordeal bearing chilling similarities to the brutal kidnapping, rape and attempted murder of Alison Botha 22 years ago.

Police spokeswoman Captain Sandra Janse van Rensburg said yesterday a team of detectives had been working around the clock to find the culprits.

The student was abducted after a night of partying at Cafe Loxion in Parliament Street, Central, and then going to the flat of an acquaintance.
