Raped woman found under bed

2012-02-19 14:30

Johannesburg - A man has been arrested for allegedly raping a woman in Vaalpark, Sasolburg, early on Saturday morning, said Free State police.

The woman was reportedly employed to look after two children when the man placed his hand on her mouth around 01:00 and pulled her from her bed, said Constable Peter Kareli in a statement.

"It is alleged that she was being pulled by the brother of the owner of the house. He allegedly instructed her not to scream and took her to another room where he raped her a couple of times," said Kareli.

The children apparently started crying when they noticed the woman was no longer in the room, waking their aunt who was sleeping in another room.

The aunt looked for the woman and notified the owner of the house, who was in Bloemfontein, that she couldn't find the woman.

The owner contacted police.

The aunt reportedly then heard a sound under the man's bed, where she found the woman half-naked and shaking, said Kareli.

Police arrived, and after speaking to the woman, arrested the man with the woman taken to a place of safety.

The man was expected to appear in the Sasolburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.

      If you hide your victim under your bed, no one will suspect you

    It is ironic that, even with so many rapes reported here on News24, it is not even a fraction of what is really happening. Three women raped every minute, 180 an hour, if News24 had to report on every single one, it would be impossible to keep up!! It is a hopeless situation indeed. For the victim - I hope you can recover physically and emotionally from your ordeal, nobody deserves what you had tp go through.

      Never realized the stats were so high.Something really has to be done, very worrying that there can be so many men out there capable of rape.For every woman raped there is a bad man behind it- sick

  • Lavida Koekemoer - 2012-02-19 15:08

    I think we man should start attending man forums...this animal behaviour some man has...must come to a stop...we cannot live in society where man are feared....

      Blane - 2012-02-19 15:12

      And what do you propose ? I suggest bringing back the death penalty .

      Riaad - 2012-02-19 15:34

      Well said, Blane. The Death Penalty is the only one that rapists fear.

    Until all of these guys who are found guilty are Jailed for Life, they will do this. The Bastards need to be thought that this is akin to Murder.

      Riaad - 2012-02-19 15:35

      And why should we tax-payers pay for their boarding and lodging for life?

      Schmee - 2012-02-20 08:00

      @Riaad, look at it this way, the tax payer should be happy to pay with the knowledge that Big Baba will be hiding him under his bed in jail.

    A disturbed man. What other outcome, but jail, is there in raping a woman employed in the house you live in?

  • Julie - 2012-02-19 15:25

    Why was a babysitter required if their aunt was also in the house? Funny story!

      Abongile Mbauli - 2012-02-19 15:32

      Live in sitter?

      Riaad - 2012-02-19 15:38

      Maybe the aunt was sickly, deaf, crippled, working from home, etc.

      Dorothy - 2012-02-19 16:45

      I agree. Also, why, when the woman's absence was reported to her employer in Bloem, did the employer call the police? Why not assume she had just run away. Me thinks the plot stinks!

      Fritz - 2012-02-19 23:02

      I don't think there is anything funny about this story. You finding amusement in a women being raped, regardless of the other details, is indicative of you being seriously disturbed.

      yolie.Landa - 2012-02-20 09:42

      U dont know if the aunty is working during the day or was there for a short time. U must reason u foolish boy

  • Charmaine - 2012-02-19 15:38

    This is cruelty to Human beings! I still say from my business point, that the government must implement the law of canning these bastards sjambokking, in public. They deserve to have their penis cut off. So many rape cases are not being reported. I pray constantly for healing for all the victims.

  • Christopher Thunder Linde - 2012-02-19 17:06

    Why do people do such things knowing they going to be caught?

      Sharon - 2012-02-19 17:30

      In answer to your question, Christopher, read the article from this link. Check the conviction rate....

  • Bra - 2012-02-19 17:31

    yah.. men are starving out there,they are killing by NaCL(Sodium chloride).Rape cases are many.I feel sorry to the victim.this is really bad

  • Nkosinathi - 2012-02-19 17:35

    The only best solution that can be given to rapist is just castrate the beast and make them docile.

  • Buti - 2012-02-19 17:36

    There's no rape here only addition of story.

      Gail - 2012-02-20 08:32

      @buti, what on earth are you trying to say?

  • Kusleg - 2012-02-19 19:05

    Just wondering what type of bed it was because the beds of nowadays even shoes might not fit under what more a person..a woman for that matter, considering the way our women are so obese.

      Schmee - 2012-02-20 08:08

      Kusleg don't comment if you don't have the ability to think.

  • TaniaSandraSteyn - 2012-02-19 19:34

    According to some; I guess she asked for it because she was wearing pyjamas?

      Charlotte - 2012-02-19 21:07

      Tania, I assume you are a woman I can’t believe you said that she 'asked for it' .you are casting doubt on her character and not on the person who has actually done the crime. No person deserves to be raped. There is not ONE reason or action that justifies rape. I am a trauma counsellor and I can assure you, no arrest would be made without sufficient evidence.. The fact that every 23seconds a woman is raped in South Africa, is shocking, and is result of a much 'damaged' society and just causes cycle of more damage. SO Tania, I am asking you to stand with us and to say that there is absolutely NO reason for rape and no one can ever ask for it. You have to believe this, I have counselled children, mothers, sisters, nurses and prostitutes who have been raped...and not one has asked for it and not one person deserves it. It is so devastating for these women and their families.

      Stefanus - 2012-02-19 22:03

      @Charlotte, If you rape a prostitute, is it rape or shoplifting?

      Cathandra - 2012-02-20 07:40

      @Charlotte Tania was being sarcastic she was impling that no women is safe no matter what you wear,do or act. Rape is not about sex its about POWER.

      Schmee - 2012-02-20 08:07

      Relax Charlotte! I think Tania is sarcastically referring to the most famous rape of them all. When Zuma said that the women he raped was wearing a kanga and therefore asked for it.

  • brionyl.french - 2012-02-20 05:56

    What is up with all these cowards

  • cruywagen - 2012-02-20 07:16

    Do you really find rape hard to believe or this story hard to believe? Have you ever changed a baby's nappy that has been raped? Held a friends hand when she is blaming herself, because how could she have avoided being rape? When a young girl is pregnant because she has been raped by her step father and is not only pregnant but also HIV positive as a result. Never mind the emotional scaring. Respect my friend is not what you have, you need to be educated on what is actually going in this country by the minute. This morning many young girls will wake up violated and changed for life because someone had no regard for the or their life. Unbelievable? I don't think so.
