Girl tells of horrific rape

2012-05-16 10:47
Cape Town - A young girl started crying in the Western Cape High Court as she recalled how she was brutally raped and left for dead by a man in Darling.

The Daily Voice reported that the horrific rape and assault left her paralysed in her right arm as well as both her legs. She also has speech difficulties.

She was only 9 when she was attacked in October 2010.

She told the court via a video link-up how Stephen “Foxy” Isaacs had dragged her into the bushes after promising to buy her sweets.

She began crying as she told how Isaacs undressed her and asked her to perform oral sex.

When she refused, he assaulted her and choked her, and then raped her.

She passed out and later came to in the veld. 

Although Isaacs pleaded not guilty, the girl pointed him out in court saying, “Is hy. (it’s him)”
