Johannesburg - A man drowned when he fell into a river in Zingqayi Village, Butterworth, after trying to abduct a teenage girl, Eastern Cape police said on Thursday.

The man, in his 20s, tried to grab the 18-year-old girl, who was at the river collecting water on Tuesday, Captain Jackson Manatha said.

Residents heard the girl screaming and went to investigate.

"The suspect tried to run for dear life, [but] fell into the river and drowned."

An inquest docket had been opened.

      In the news tonight. An unknown piece of sh*t drowned when he fell into a river in Zingqayi Village, Butterworth, after trying to abduct a teenage girl, Eastern Cape police said on Thursday. The water is now contaminated due to the piece of sh*t, forcing authorities to turn the river into a sewage plant.

  • Johnnys_Place - 2012-07-05 14:16

    Good riddance - however, I cant help to wonder as to how exactly he fell into the river... maybe pushed by the community after they heard the girl scream ? But still, one less abducter/rapist/killer etc.

      susanna.smit.7 - 2012-07-05 14:40

      No, according to the article the river got him whilst he was trying to run away! River monster with a sense of morality, I guess.

      Johnnys_Place - 2012-07-05 14:44

      Damn river monsters !!!

      rbphiri - 2012-07-05 14:54

      Atheist, Muslim, Christian or whatever??? regardless the scumbag deserved to die. What we should be concerned about is not religion but that there is one less butthole, piece of human excrement on our streets...and rivers in this case.

      E=MC2 - 2012-07-05 16:05

      Charles, not only Atheists go to hell... ;)

  • bhekumuzi.mdakane - 2012-07-05 14:28

    well know ladies know that if they stand next to pools or rivers they are safe. they don't plan that far to learn how to swim and have a good get away which is good because know if we are robed and your close to water like depp water and for those of us who can swimm jump in and look at them stand there shouting or just push them in but thats murder and jumping in for me would be more funny with this idiot standing there.

  • Carla - 2012-07-05 14:34

    I'm torn... On the one hand he's no longer a threat to any woman/girl but I really would have liked to see him get some mob justice instead...

      charlesdumbwin.dumbwin - 2012-07-05 14:37

      Shame Carla, the idiot drowned, isn't that punishment enough?

      susanna.smit.7 - 2012-07-05 14:42

      All that h2o molecules splashing together stopped him from getting much needed oxygen into his system...

      james.sleigh.1 - 2012-07-05 14:44

      Maybe it was mob justice, if your head is held under water for a time, you still drown. Love the karma.

      rbphiri - 2012-07-05 14:51

      Hahaha Carla leave that to the Little Mermaid...trust me his now sushi

      Carla - 2012-07-05 15:03

      That's why I'm torn Charles... He's been punished by drowning, but self-inflicted punishment is never as satisfying as peer imposed justice :)

      SaleƩ - 2012-07-05 15:06

      @Carla , I say it was because of mob justice that he fell into the river in the first place. Why would a man who knows he cannot swim escape towards the river? He could have gone upstream or downstream along the bank, depending on where the mob was coming from. Possible, non? @RPhiri, sweetie you do need to learn to distinguish between "his" and "he's" (Use it. Don't use it.)

  • alta.krause - 2012-07-05 14:54

  • SaleĆ© - 2012-07-05 15:02

    Fell? Pushed? Who cares? He was a baddie and rivers tell no tales. There's a few people I know that must be made to conveniently fall into a river.

  • isabel.w.stokes - 2012-07-05 15:03

    Excellent. One more scumbag bites the dust.

  • d4zza - 2012-07-05 15:05

    I think they forgot "" around the "fell". Should read 'The suspect tried to run for dear life, [but] "fell" into the river and drowned.' Hahaha
