Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
A MAN fell asleep after allegedly raping a woman on Sunday morning.
The woman escaped by saying she needed to use the toilet. When she got outside, she called the police.
Police found the 39-year-old man hiding, wearing only his underpants, in the victim's room at Putswastene, Thabong, in Free State.
They arrested him and found the knife allegedly used in the attack.
Warrant Officer Malebo Khosana said the 37 year-old woman heard a knock on her door early on Sunday morning.
She opened the door thinking it was her ex-boyfriend.
But another man, armed with a knife, forced his way into the shack where she lived with two children aged two and five.
"He then told her that he wanted to have sex with her and that she must tell the two kids to keep quiet or else he would stab her," Khosana said.
The man will appear in the Welkom Magistrate's Court soon. - Sapa.
