 Cape Town - A Cape Town woman has accused the police of wrecking her sex life following a raid on her house, during which she suffered an injury to her vagina.

The Daily Voice reported that the family wanted to press charges against the police but the prosecuting authority had decided not to pursue the matter.

The incident happened 12 years ago when police stormed the house of John Swanepoel and his daughter Rina, throwing gas grenades and shooting rubber bullets at the family that was accused of behaving disorderly.

Rina Swanepoel, 50, said the fly-off lever of a shock grenade flew off and injured her vagina.  

“I felt a strange feeling in my vagina and till today I have lost my sex drive.”

Swanepoel’s father was also injured in the stomach during the attack, losing his appetite and giving him unspecified stomach ailments.

“I have brought three children into the world, but now I get no feeling for a man, not even a little warmth,” said Rina.  

The whole family was suffering as a result of the incident but a police spokesperson said officials had met with the family and explained to them why their case would not be pursued.
