Durban - A KwaZulu-Natal woman's hopes of finding a job turned into tragedy when the man who was supposed to be helping her suddenly turned on her and raped her, police said on Tuesday.

Captain Nqobile Gwala said the 29-year-old woman was walking in Jacobs, south of Durban, on April 29 this year when a man in his 60s promised her he would get her a job at a company.

He told her to walk with him to a place where they could sit and he would take her details down. Instead, once he was near some bushes, he pushed her to the ground, pulled out a knife and raped her.

The woman survived the attack and the Brighton Beach Family Violence Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit is working toward apprehending the suspect.

An identikit of the man has been made available and the unit is hoping that somebody will recognise him and help with the investigation.

Gwala said the man was described as well built, of medium height and with a missing tooth.

Anyone who recognises him is asked to contact investigating officer Constable Samantha Fynn on 031 203 7334 or 082 930 8615 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
