Dlamini said the man was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly raping and stabbing a student from the University of Pretoria.

While in custody at Pretoria North police station, the prisoner complained that he felt ill. He was taken to the hospital from which he escaped.

Beeld newspaper reported on Monday that the rape victim suffered at least 22 stab wounds, including cuts to her face, neck and legs.

    Why dont the press or police ever give the truth she was not just stabbed and raped - The 22-year-old Afrikaner student was 'virtually disected', enduring 22 cuts and stabs by a butcher knife according to medical personnel - and then raped The woman's face, hands and legs were grossly carved up and mutilated. The gruesomely injured woman still managed to drag herself to her garden gate inside the security complex - where a resident heard her whispered 'help me, help me'.This savage ordeal lasted several hours."With time at his disposal the attacker waited for her in her secured apartment, and with a butcher knife stabbed her." He then took the knife and started to dissect her face by cutting open the nose, through the lips and ended under her chin.She fought back fiercely - and he tried to stab out her eye. A deep cut was made from her neck and stopped at her lung. All her fingers were then cut into: her left thumb was carved apart and was just hanging by its senews.Two other fingers' senews were also cut through. He then forced her to the bedroom and made very deep cutting wounds to her legs."After cutting main arteries on her body (22 cuts and stabs in total) she was bleeding copiously, and then he raped her amidsts the bloodbath he had created around her."

      Thank you for the gruesome details. About time somebody spelled out the truth about rape and not leaving people to think it was hunky dory sex minus consent.... This type of thing is the NORM for rape, not to mention the insides being torn out of young girls and toddlers by the rape apparatus!!!
