BARBERTON — A woman bit off a rapist’s tongue when he tried to kiss her.

The man stabbed her in the shoulder to force her to let him go and then fled.

The woman placed the tongue in a plastic bag and took it to the police.

“She came in at about 3 am carrying a white packet with half a tongue in it,” said Constable Jabu Ndubane.

“She said she didn’t resist [the rapist] and did everything he forced her to do because he was holding a knife.”

But the man complained when she didn’t respond sexually, and tried to French kiss her, so she bit off his tongue.

Police are on the look-out for a man with half a tongue.
