Pregnant Woman Bites Rapist’s Genitals – Police
She was rape in front of her young child after she hitched a lift with two men in eastern Mpumalanga province
South African Police said they are on the lookout for a man with severely injured genitalia who allegedly raped a pregnant woman, who bit him in self-defence.
Local police spokesman Leonard Hlathi told newsmen on Wednesday that the woman, who was in the third month of her pregnancy, was raped at knife point.
“She was rape in front of her young child after she hitched a lift with two men in eastern Mpumalanga province.
“The woman managed to bite the private part of the man, who ran away after the ordeal,’’ it added.
Hlathi told newsmen that in spite of his bad injuries, the man had managed to flee.
“It is not the first time that men bitten on the genitals have managed to escape,’’ he said.
He said that the woman is being treated by a psychologist, and noted that in South Africa “sexual offence cases are high.”
However, the figures may be even higher, with think tank Africa Check warning that rape may be under-reported.
