At least two men were assaulted by Qwaqwa community members after they reportedly attempted to attack the ladies' residence in the Tshiya Resource Centre.
It is believed the learners were from Mathabo Secondary School in Qwaqwa.
According to witnesses there were five men, but three of them managed to flee from the scene while two were beaten by the community.
It is alleged their motive was to rape the female learners and steal their belongings.
Nothing has been reported stolen.
However, police spokesperson Mmako Mophiring confirmed the incident but was unable to disclose if a case was opened against the two suspects or not.
Mophiring adds the suspects were handed over to the police by the community, and they are still in hospital receiving treatment for serious injuries.
He concluded that at this point they are in no condition to appear in court.
