Rape victim bites off attacker's tongue

2012-02-27 22:30

Johannesburg - A teenager bit off a man's tongue while he was raping her in Masoyi, near Hazyview, Mpumalanga police said on Monday.

The 17-year-old girl was held up by an armed man and his accomplice, and dragged into bushes on Saturday, Lieutenant Colonel Leonard Hlathi said in a statement.

The man with the gun told his partner to fetch alcohol and some friends to gang rape the girl.

He then forcefully undressed her and began to rape her.

"In the process, the suspect tried to kiss the victim, but she bit off his tongue and ran to nearby houses for help," he said.

Police were alerted, tracked down the man and arrested him.

He was being kept under police guard in hospital, but was expected to appear in the Kabokweni Magistrate's Court when he was discharged.

      Bastards like that have NO BOLEROS. That is their excuse for raping. They should be shot, starting at the feet first

      This culture of freeloading and wanting to take anything and everything they want for free is to blame for the unacceptable levels of rape in this country. Wooing and proposing to a woman the regular way is too much WORK for these lazy bastards. Castration is the only solution to this pandemic. If you rape we take away your tool. If you kill we tale away your life. Thats the only law these animals will understand.

      I agree with you marnusmnorval, Cut his penis off!!!!! Killing him will be way too easy with not enough pain involved. These bastards should be taught a lesson and he could be used as the first example..

    Hope the lynch squad gets him and issues some old-school justice...nothing like a good necklacing to send the message that this behaviour will not be tolerated

      Love the smell of burning rubber!

  • marnusmnorval - 2012-02-27 23:27

    Why are we commenting on this? Its obvious that his court date will keep getting postponed in he end the only person suffering is the poor girl

      alansmartSnr - 2012-02-28 01:55

      Wonder how he's going to plead in court. "Nog ilty". BTW. I've got a ox tongue in the freezer.. Dont think I'll eat it now

      Chris - 2012-02-28 07:47

      For his sake he better hope he doesn't get bail. Locals won't take kindly to rapists and it won't be hard to spot the guy.

      Multi - 2012-02-28 07:50

      @marnusmnorval I really hope you are wrong

  • Klaus - 2012-02-27 23:37

    He hasn't much of a story to tell, i hope the judge will give him a 'tong lashing'!!

      John - 2012-02-28 05:09

      Klaus, a hundred thumbs up, brilliant!

  • Nkosinathi Mokoena - 2012-02-28 00:19

  • karsten.kaminski - 2012-02-28 00:24

    It's not a laughing matter, the poor girl got raped. However I must say "Give that girl a Bells"

      Marion - 2012-02-28 06:52

      @Garth - okay, so she is underage. There are some people on this site who just use that as a way of saying 'well done'... if you want to split hairs, how about we say 'give that girl coke'... oh no, that implies we want to drug her now, does it?

      Fussed - 2012-02-28 07:31

      @ Garth, Ok we all know how doff you are. Do you stutter now that part of your tongue is missing

      Garth - 2012-02-28 08:50

      And you two think that I am thick?

      Randomhero6661 - 2012-02-28 09:18

      ya ne you two missed that one by a long more bells ne?

  • Antionette Oberholzer - 2012-02-28 01:16

    Shhould've been another part of his anatomy.

  • Choice Ndabangaye - 2012-02-28 01:29

    why he rape because he has got tongue to talk for his for five?don't keep him for long in hospital he must come and dance

  • garth.bester2 - 2012-02-28 05:00

    He seems to have a problem with his sexual desires, remove them.

  • Gemma-Leigh Evans - 2012-02-28 05:01

    He actually sent his friend to get more men to gang rape this girl?! What the hell is this world coming if raping her wasn't bad enough. My heart goes out to the girl, and congrats to her for fighting back!!!

      Elle-Black - 2012-02-28 07:09

      @ Gemma i cant get over that part either,that he wanted to get more people to join in? I'm sure the police can come up with more to charge him with over and above kidnapping and rape.

      Gemma-Leigh Evans - 2012-02-28 07:29

      One can only hope, quite frankly I have no faith in our country's justice system. Which makes every story like this, all the more saddening...I hope she has all the support in the world, coz she's got a rough road ahead of her

      Garth - 2012-02-28 08:54

      And another thing to think about is: Is his cowardly waste-of-oxygen friend going to get charged too? How about tracking down the `friends' too! What a sick society . . .

  • Thandy Moupo - 2012-02-28 05:12

    I agree, Give that girl a BELLS!!!

      Fussed - 2012-02-28 07:34

      Give Garth a gun quick

  • raymond.kok3 - 2012-02-28 05:33

    good for you girl now buy yourself a knife and carry it in your purse you never know maybe just maybe you will need it to do some emergency cutting of eating a apple or something , but its always a handy thing to have around

  • rooshen - 2012-02-28 06:41

    Brave girl :)

  • renekleyn1 - 2012-02-28 06:45

    You are a brave young girl, good for you!!!

  • Cristina - 2012-02-28 06:46

    Good on you girl!!! Let's hope you're ok after all of this! and the Police find the bastard!

      cwboshoff - 2012-02-28 07:08

      They have arrested him already, waiting for the hospital to finish fixing him up so he can go to court.

  • Marion - 2012-02-28 06:49

    You are one quick-thinking young lady. Well done! Ultimately in a situation like that the only one who can save us is ourselves. ***** to you.

  • Princess - 2012-02-28 06:52

    What a legend! Nicely done. Hope she gets all the support she needs after her traumatic experience

  • Johan - 2012-02-28 06:52

    He rapes her and then he wants to kiss her tongue and all! He got carried away and should have suffered more than a bitten off tongue!

  • gillian.sanderson - 2012-02-28 07:16

    A lot of clever/funny comments here - but seem to be missing the real story. This poor girl was raped and must be so traumatised. What a horrible ordeal . . .

  • Mickey Sipho Mlokoti - 2012-02-28 07:19

    she is so brave.... Hope she'll get help after this traumatic experience.

  • Sonika Weston - 2012-02-28 07:24

    Poor girl, must have been traumatic! Well done, we're proud of you for thinking on your feet!

  • guyt1 - 2012-02-28 07:26


  • btnkabinde - 2012-02-28 07:31

    give that girl a bell

  • TMadics - 2012-02-28 07:33

    The dude deserves it, wish she had also chopped his d...k.

  • TMadics - 2012-02-28 07:36

    I thank God that she managed to escape before the other guys comes to join the party. But i'm sad that she got raped, could have been worse if she didn't bit the tongue.

  • Multi - 2012-02-28 07:49

    MAIM AND SHAME! On a serious note I hope you get all the medical and psychological help you need my. I can't imagine what you are going through after that horrible experience. Well done for fighting back.

  • Bibi - 2012-02-28 08:00

    Good for you girl. Good luck with the healing process.

  • Dieter - 2012-02-28 08:32

    Some chicks just don't like kissing during s3x!

      Snoopy.zn - 2012-02-28 08:36

      Your an idiot!

      Stan - 2012-02-28 09:02

  • Elaine - 2012-02-28 09:18

    Good for her!

  • Yolandè Rwaai - 2012-02-28 11:10

    Too bad they took him to hospital! They should've left him to feel the pain!

  • Parlo J Mkatazo - 2012-02-28 11:30

    I just hope the guy didn't have HIV AIDS or the girl didn't have any cuts inside her mouth if there was bleeding in the process

  • Stray - 2012-02-28 13:28

    No bail, no Bells (victim is underage), take the rapist's Bols.

  • lotz.ilse - 2012-02-28 15:19


  • peter.vandermerwe3 - 2012-02-29 13:58

    Blikskottel...serves him right, and when is this nonsense going to stop. That means our children cannot wait or walk freely as there's sick people out there...
