Johannesburg – An alleged rapist was overpowered by his victim and her husband, and then handed over to the police in Ibika Township, near Butterworth, on Thursday, Eastern Cape police said.

The woman was asleep with her husband when she heard someone breaking down their door, said police spokesperson Jackson Manatha.

"A male voice told her to keep quiet. The couple complied with the suspect, who robbed them of their cellphones before raping the woman in front of her husband," he said.

The woman's husband attacked the man while he was allegedly raping his wife.

"The husband overpowered him with the help of his wife and subdued the man before calling the police," said Manatha.

The 30-year-old rapist was taken to Butterworth Hospital, where he was treated and discharged.

He would appear in court on Friday.

    The Fact that he was well enough to be discharged worries me they should have used him as a punching bag for the whole neighbourhood before calling the cops!!!!!!

    Pity the b@stard's testicles weren't crushed before 'it' was handed over. Hoping the justice system will actually be put to work in this instance instead.

    Why why why why. Why did they hand him over. Just to rape and steal again in near future.
