You are hurting me - 'Sunday Rapist' survivor

2012-07-27 14:40

Johannesburg - A 13-year-old alleged victim of Johannes Jacobus Steyn, dubbed the "Sunday rapist", told the High Court, sitting in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court in Alberton on Friday how he grabbed her, drove around with her and raped her.

"A man came from behind and grabbed me around my body and pushed a gun against my head," the girl said.

The girl was testifying in camera, as an order was given to protect her identity.

"I started screaming. He pushed me into the car... He pushed me under the dashboard," the girl said with emotion evident in her voice.

‘You will suffer’

She described how she tried to get out of the car, but it was locked.

He told her "as jy so aanhou gaan jy kak suster (if you keep behaving like this you will suffer, sister)", she testified.

Steyn is accused of murdering school girls Louise de Waal and Lazanne Farmer.

He is also charged with 11 counts of rape, 10 of sexual assault, 10 of kidnapping, one of attempted sexual assault, one of attempted kidnapping, and two of assault.

He pleaded not guilty to all 37 charges against him. The 11 girls Steyn allegedly attacked between 2008 and 2011 were aged between 11 and 18.

The girl, who was 11 at the time, said a man drove her to the veld and with a pocket knife removed her shirt before taking off her pants and underwear.

"He tried to kiss me, but I kept my mouth closed."

Ran through the bush to get away

The girl testified in detail how she was sexually assaulted.

"I told him, 'mister you are hurting me'. He told me, 'no, it is fun'."

Afterwards, the man blindfolded her, drove around and took her to what he said was an air field.

"He carried me to the top of a hill and said to wait there, he would be back."

She said she saw the roof of a house and when she heard the car door close she ran towards it.
"I ran through the bush towards the house."

    Sick bastard. Off with his wedding tackle!

      nrgx.nrg - 2012-07-27 14:51

      hang him from his berries!

      ann.murray.9279 - 2012-07-27 14:58

      What absolutely astounds me is the charming pictures of this psychopath!!In all those I have so far seen, he looks quite mad and extremely scary. Poor child and others that had to be exposed to this monster. Seems that South Afric harbours a number of these creatures!

      @ ovaprivilegedwhitey.john - Don't be a jerk. While your comments may have some merit they are completely out of context here. All you're doing now is getting on peoples' nerves - which is maybe what you're trying to do?

      rofras - 2012-07-27 15:41

      The idiot is even smiling, no sign of remorse. Burn him n leave him to die.

      pieriewaaier.zooms - 2012-07-27 17:49

      @ ovaprivelegedwhity. A very generalised statement to say the least> I travel widely and just recently met up with a friend in London who was telling me about this very friendly man he had met on the street asking for money in a 'thick South African accent". I asked him to tell me about this guy thinking it might be an Afrikaans speaking youngster struggling in London. He said "Gosh, I think he was a Zulu". Som what are you talking about?

      sharon.tarin1 - 2012-07-30 15:30

      Problem is that it's not a sexual act, but an act of violence, I say off with the tackle and the hands, if they could include the head, it may be good too.

  • malcolm.fortuin.5 - 2012-07-27 14:52

    I would not even feel anything to kill him but thats not enough I would cut his d#ck off and set him free in polsmore

      gordon.trevat - 2012-07-27 15:21

      If he is found guilty, the victims should request for him to be kept at pollsmoor.

      Ari - 2012-07-27 15:26

      Ideally, when found guilty, his sentence should be that he be turned over to the community to be dealt with as they see fit . . .

  • ahenriquesfernandes - 2012-07-27 14:52

    Reading this breaks my heart. I wish the death penalty was back for monsters like this

  • Chantelle Melissa Stimie - 2012-07-27 16:32

    The Judge should force Jacob Zuma to implement for this case-The death sentence! Death would not even be half as bad as the pain he caused those girls and their families. Not to meantion the girls he killed. He is a sick man!ThIs guy should be hanged or even stoned.

  • John - 2012-07-27 18:16

    He should have his penis scrotum and testes surgically removed, chained to a ball and chain and given into slavery to the families of the victims.

      Bless Boswell - 2012-07-27 22:23

      With you 100%. Deserves to have that smirk wiped right of his disgusting face.

      Bless Boswell - 2012-07-28 16:55

      Actuallyno. Not surgical removal. Let a rape victims parent do the surgery with an instrument of their choosing.

  • Mandy Casey - 2012-07-27 18:29

      Bless Boswell - 2012-07-27 23:05

      That's not a smile it's a smirk. A self satisfied smirk.

  • maylani.bezuidenhout - 2012-07-27 22:32

    Child rapists should get the death penalty.

  • Truth.nnete - 2012-07-28 08:36

      Not funny. Rape is a serious crime.

  • piet.vandergrijp - 2012-08-02 12:11

    If he is guilty of even one of these crimes, hang him until he is dead. And then hang all the other rapists and murderers.
