JOHANNESBURG - An actor in the popular soapie Scandal! has been arrested along with 16 others at a brothel in Springs, east of Johannesburg.
The six men and 11 women -- aged between 19 and 43 years old -- have been charged under the Sexual Offences Act.
The arrest follows another bust at a brothel in the same area, where five teenage girls were allegedly held as sex slaves in what appeared to be a barber shop.
A 42-year-old man was arrested in that case, on charges of human trafficking.
