Elderly woman bites rapist to make him stop

2012-11-15 08:36

Durban - An elderly woman from Bhamshela in KwaZulu-Natal has revealed how she bit a man raping her to make him stop.

The 63-year-old woman, who is partially blind, told the Daily News that the man broke into her house and asked for money.

She gave him her last R50, hoping he would go away. But the man then told her to open her legs and forced himself on her.

“I did not want to let him win, so I kept on biting him until he stopped raping me and left through the window,” said the unnamed woman.

The police were called and she was able to give enough of a description for them to arrest him.

The 22-year-old man then apparently knelt before the woman and apologised.

A local community leader said they were doing all they could to help the woman, who was living alone.

    Bullet to the back of the head. Finished

      patson.nedzamba - 2012-11-15 08:52

      And another bullet if he survives

      peterpeter.pumkineater.5 - 2012-11-15 09:09

      Patson, why 'if' he survives? Why stop there? empty the gun!

      peterpeter.pumkineater.5 - 2012-11-15 09:15

      hell...if he's dead already, what difference does it make. Everyone needs some stress relief

      This story does not seem real. --------------------------------------------- The 22-year-old man then apparently knelt before the woman and apologised. ------------------------------------------------------------- Do police arrest you and take you to the victim to apologies or they send you straight to the holding cell?

      May you be raped everyday in prison you sick bastard! What is it with these people??? Do they have some kind of virus that effects their penises? Are they that jags to rape old people?

      jason.evetts.5 - 2012-11-15 10:40

      i want to say doing something like that will just demonstrate more violence and this country will never move fowared. BUT i really agree he should be shot.

      Henk Van Biljon - 2013-03-29 20:29

      He was sorry he got caught, not because of what he did.

  • ray.molekoa.5 - 2012-11-15 08:47

    Protected by our sell out constitution !

  • tebo.go.5 - 2012-11-15 08:48

    Good, nx this idiot

  • PrettyUsefulArt - 2012-11-15 08:50

    No matter how many times one read stories such as this it never becomes less shocking. More so, in fact.

  • duane.vanvuuren - 2012-11-15 08:51

    Well done! Good for her! Should have bitten that monster's shlong off!

      pearlybabe.gumede - 2012-11-15 09:12

      @ Duane, I agree or if there was acid near by dip it in there and watch his whole body get eaten away. What the devil is a 22 year old thinking/fantasing ( if ever) over a 63 year old lady sis :-#....the part where he gets on his knees for forgiveness just takes the cake for me.

  • khethu.ndlovu.3 - 2012-11-15 08:54

    He should have been kicked on the mouth whilst he was kneeling.

  • pdvermaak - 2012-11-15 08:55

    Ag no man, disgusting, where is the respect for our elders.

  • hudayfah.newman - 2012-11-15 09:02

    He's only sorry because he was caught. Where are our necklacing mafia when you need them?

  • storm.trooper.125 - 2012-11-15 09:04


  • tmukasa - 2012-11-15 09:05

    Doesn't sound like he even got arrested. Then again... even if he did, he would probably be out in a few hours because the SA CONSTITUTION Protects criminals as well...

  • hope.fifield - 2012-11-15 09:07

    Bullet to his genitals and RAPIST tattooed on his head - after a year, shoot him in the face so he sees it coming.

      J.Stephen.Whiteley - 2012-11-15 11:30

      I have often wished part of the punishment was to tattoo RAPIST or PAEDOPHILE on a perpetrator's forehead, but I know the Human Rights Commission will step in to protect the criminal. Kathy

      ronald.stilianou - 2012-11-15 12:10

      Forget tattoos , just brand it in with a red hot poker- the type farmers use to mark cattle.

  • lorain.maseko - 2012-11-15 09:09

    And then he apologised? Some things are unforgivable,he should not have done it to begin with

  • kofi.ghanaman - 2012-11-15 09:15

    There must be something wrong with this country. Some of the stories I read from SA are too bizzare for such a beautiful country. I may not have the right to judge another country but since I started taking interest in SA news I have been shocked on a daily basis by the stories that come out of our respected Madibaland. What is happening in South Africa? I dare ask again.

  • mondli.dlomo.73 - 2012-11-15 09:24

    why do we choose to go and rape old women when there are hundreds of prostitutes on the streets. the woman gave him her last R50, why didn't he take it and go to look for the prostis if he was so desperately horny. eish some people are a disgrace

      helga.venter.1 - 2012-11-15 12:07

      In general people don't rape because they are horny. They rape because it is a way to humiliate and control someone else.

  • issa.kabudula - 2012-11-15 09:25

    It means why he was arrested by the police, he was taken to the woman and knelt down and apologised and then taken to police cells. Rape stories will come to an end soon - we are coming with a heavy plan which will stop you the rapist at a distance - this is inhuman.

  • Dumsile Hlatshwayo - 2012-11-15 09:26

    Eish so sad!!They shuld lock him for years in jail,so young bt dng horrible thngs to our grandparents.He shuld b luking for a JOB to survive nt DIS*angry*

  • dee.bone.39 - 2012-11-15 09:29

    no joke this. Following someone else's example by apologising. another showerman in the making

  • TheyTookMyNickLaZynEko - 2012-11-15 09:33

    rapists never win. they fail real hard.

  • abiot.manthata - 2012-11-15 10:13

    Guys what's happening with the KZN boys, chicks in this areas aren't enough 4 u? Ag sies man, we seek & tired of this evil actions, if we read in the newspapers or tv it's KZN rapists, no wonder why the hiv rate is so high in this province plz no offense I am just pissed off. If you rape they must cut off your f****n nuts. I don't does this thing coming from that if you rape a senior citizen or a toddler, u'll be healed 4rm hiv & aids, that's ridiculous whoever thinks so. come on Mzansi wake up, we're going back to Gomora.

  • amehlonyosi - 2012-11-15 10:21

    Sies man!! What on earth was he thinking. Our society is sick

  • carolyn.dewrance - 2012-11-15 10:29

    kill this scum shoot him dead.

  • brionyl.french - 2012-11-15 10:30

    cut of his penis!! Rapists need to have their bits cut off for their crimes!!! Because that guy will rape again

      helga.venter.1 - 2012-11-15 12:09

      Again - rapists rape to control someone else, not because they want sex. Cutting off a rapist penis will make no difference. You don't need a penis to rape someone (other body parts/objects will also do) Comments like these just show how people misunderstand rape.

  • brionyl.french - 2012-11-15 10:31

    Gift yes they do... The cops did the same thing to my brother when they stole his car, they made them walk to our house and all three of them apologise before taking them to jail....

  • palesa.sehong - 2012-11-15 10:40

    I salute the eldery woman,this will be the lesson to 0ther young boys who rape woman out there.

  • melinda.botha.75 - 2012-11-15 10:50

    You Go "old tannie " well done

  • jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-11-15 11:28

    Bloody savage. A pity he didn't bleed to death.

  • siphobongohead - 2012-11-15 11:29

    He knelt to apologise. Let him also kneel when the tyre is put around his neck.

  • sicelo.brukwe.9 - 2012-11-15 11:43

    Good Shot Gogo, its like you hit Big Six on a last ball in a tense final of the cricket World Cup!

  • craig.thom.376 - 2012-11-15 12:03


  • joseph.gaylard - 2012-11-16 00:53

    i am not sure what is more disturbing - the article itself, or the quantity of vitriol, racism and graphic descriptions of violence generated in response to it...

  • willem.d.jager - 2012-11-26 12:03

    Can the ANC not see the message they are spreading (yes like a disease) by keeping a man who was charged for rape in power? This is a symptom of the cANCer!

  • christopher.cousens - 2013-02-20 10:37

    No bullets, just ask the community to give him what he deserves. That seems to be lawful nowdays and mob justice seems to go pretty unpunished.

  • Julia Nhlapo - 2013-03-30 15:41

    A brave woman indeed. no matter where the victim bites, let the piece of meat come out so it can be a lifetime sign and a lesson for the rest of culprits lives.
