The owner of a Thai massage and spa parlour in Durban averted certain sexual assault after she told her attackers that she was HIV-positive, police said on Wednesday.

Police spokesperson Major Thulane Zwane said that the attack took place in the plush suburb of Durban North as the woman was opening the premises that she and a worker had gone to clean on Saturday morning.

According to Zwane, one of the suspects pushed the owner into a room and began groping and fondling her. He then tried to rape her, and out of desperation the woman shouted out that she was HIV-positive.

Thai national Pui Latda, speaking to News24 on Wednesday, said: “I shouted I have HIV. And then he stopped.”

The man then pushed her away and assaulted her in the face and stomach before tying her up with the mouse cable from a computer

The men then fled, taking two flat screen television sets, a computer, a Wifi modem, and an iPhone.

Latda said: “Now am am frightened. It has really scared me. This is not good for me.”

Latda, who has lived in South Africa for the past four years, said that since the attack she had thought of returning to her native Thailand.

Police are investigating a case of business robbery.
