Cape Town - A man was jailed for life for raping a young woman in Mossel Bay, Western Cape police said on Friday.

The Mossel Bay Regional Court handed down the sentence to Sibusiso Ntekiso, 31, on Thursday, for the rape of a 26-year-old woman in Kwanonqaba last year, Captain Bernadine Steyn said.

He was also sentenced for crimes committed against an 11-year-old girl last September.

The man was given 10 years for robbery, 10 years for attempted murder, one year for sexual assault and three months for assault, which would run concurrently with the life sentence.

In August 2011, Ntekiso robbed a woman, 26, of her cellphone and bank card before leading her to the bushes with a knife. He stabbed her several times in the head, stomach, buttocks, back, legs, and arm.

"[He] raped her, after which he left the scene. He returned after a while to make sure that she was dead and left again," Steyn said.

The woman managed to crawl to a street where a security guard found her. She made a full recovery.

Different crime

The following month, he approached a girl and her younger brother who were walking across a soccer field.

He took her to the bushes where a struggle ensued. He hit her head against a wall and sexually assaulted her. Her brother called for help and Ntekiso was arrested the same evening.

Steyn said she was happy with the sentence.

"We hope that it will send out a strong message to sex offenders that their freedom will be short-lived."
