Woman raped and brutally assaulted


Within hours of the vicious attack the rapist was arrested.

WHILE gardening at her Margate home a  56-year-old woman was attacked and raped on Tuesday this week.Before fleeing the assailant also robbed his victim of her jewellery including her wedding ring.


The woman’s husband found his traumatised, naked wife tied up and bleeding. Police spokesman Sergeant Pumzile Makahula said the woman had been stripped and was bound with cable ties and left in the garden.


“She was lying on the grass next to a tap with a hose attachment. The  hose had been pushed into her genital area and the tap opened,” she said. The woman was taken to hospital for treatment.


A case of rape and robbery was opened by Margate SAPS. Despite her ordeal the woman was able to  give the police a description of her attacker. Warrant Officer Trevor Moodley of Margate SAPS made an arrest a short while later.


A 22-year-old man whose name is known to the Herald appeared in the Ramsgate Magistrate’s Court yesterday (Wednesday). The case has been postponed.
