Dog saves girl from rape

2011-02-20 08:39

Rome - A dog saved a teenage Italian girl from being raped by its master as the canine began barking, eventually leading to the man's arrest, ANSA news agency said Saturday.

The 14-year-old girl from Milan was playing with the dog and met its 40-year-old owner, a father of a six-year-old, in a park in the northern city after skipping class on September 20 last year, the agency reported.

The girl accepted an invitation for coffee but on leaving the cafe the man grabbed her neck and tried to undress her. At that moment the dog began barking distracting his owner.

The girl managed to flee after hitting him in the groin.

A medical examination confirmed the assault after she reported the incident to the police.

The assailant was identified after a five-month investigation as the girl remembered the dog's name and identified both the animal and the man in police photos.

    Have a look at 'Saudi beheaded by sword for rape' under Related Links above. High time the raping b@st@rds in this country get similar treatment instead of sitting in a prison being cared for by our taxes, only to escape or be released to continue their savagery.

      @Gorilla: I know that, I've read the article. I made a more general observation regarding rape and its punishment in South Africa based on the referenced link. Sorry, didn't know it was against the law to reference anything else but Italy in these comments.

      They do chemical castration in South Korea for this these days.

    In South Africa we are so sympathetic towards crime we make criminals hero’s and personalities, they even have a good chance of becoming president - so if we refuse to punish those who rape with death at least behead them elsewhere and tattoo on their forehead “I am headless but dangerous"

    I didn't know J.Z. was showering in Italy, Mind you he is much older than that and I think the dog would have attacked him.
