Johannesburg - Police were searching for a man who was injured as he attacked and raped a woman in Kimberley on Friday morning, Northern Cape spokesperson Lieutenant Donald Mdhluli said.

The man attacked the woman, 30, as she walked home from a tavern in the Greenpoint area.

"It is alleged that the suspect thereatened her with a knife and took her to a nearby veld. [He] then inserted the knife into the ground so that he could take off his trousers," said Mdhluli.

"Whilst taking off his trousers, the victim grabbed the knife and stabbed the suspect in his thighs, above his knees and next to his genitals."

The man retrieved the knife and stabbed the woman on her left hand and raped her.

He then took the woman to her home before he fled.

"This has made the matters worse as it appears that the suspect knows where the victim stays and it poses danger to the victim," said Mdhluli, in the appeal for help finding him.

The woman said her attacker was light in complexion, of medium height and build. He has a moustache and was wearing a red t-shirt with a double collar that was red and white.

The fluent Afrikaans-speaking man was also wearing faded jeans and cream sneakers.

"Wherever he is, he would be in need of medical attention," said Mdhluli.
