Girl slices would-be rapist's penis

A man in Limpopo is being sought by police after he failed to allegedly rape a 17-year-old girl because she retaliated and almost severed his penis using his own knife.

Last Wednesday the girl was walking alone near Makgaung village in GaSekororo when she came across the knife-wielding man aged about 60. He dragged the girl into the bush, intent on raping her at knife point.

She pleaded with him not to use force on her and told him she was willing to take instructions from him and co-operate with him.

According to police spokesman Superintendent Mohale Ramatseba, the girl did as the man requested and lay down naked so that he could penetrate her.

When he realised that the girl was co-operating with him, said Ramatseba, he put the knife aside "in preparation for a steamy sexual encounter".

The girl then grabbed the man's knife and used it to stab her attacker in the penis. Though she could not slice it off, she did a fair amount of damage to the man who, in extreme pain, hobbled away from her.

The case was reported to the police and the police are on the lookout for the alleged rapist.

"We are appealing to the public to help us find the man. Surely someone in the area must have heard about a man whose penis was damaged by a knife? Health centres in the area should phone the police if the man goes to them for treatment," said Ramatseba.

He once again issued a stern warning to women and young girls not to walk alone in lonely and bushy areas.

"Though we do not condone crime, we also believe the girl's defensive tactic must be commended as she would have been a rape statistic had she not fought back," he said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact their nearest police station.
