Update: 11:26AM POLICE have issued a statement saying there is a correction to the charges laid on two students who are allegedly involved in a sexual assault case that went viral on social media.

"The first accused, a 17-year-old has been charged with one count of abduction of a girl below the age of 18 years and one count of defilement between the age of 13 - 18 years of age," said Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro.
