A would-be rapist got much more than he bargained for after his victim, a female doctor bit off his tongue.
Reports by IOL News stated that the suspect posed as a patient to gain easy access into the Pelonomi Hospital’s staff quarters in South Africa before trying to force his tongue into the 24-year-old doctor’s mouth.
The spokesperson for the Free State provincial health department, Mondli Mvambi, told newsmen that:
“The alleged perpetrator failed to overpower the doctor and could not execute the rape. During the scuffle, the doctor managed to bite the tongue of the alleged perpetrator who then ran away to National Hospital.
“He was later arrested and then taken for plastic surgery and was operated on under police guard and he will be handed over to be taken before a court in due course.
“It is by the grace of God that the doctor had the strength to fight back and bite the suspects tongue off. She is currently undergoing medical tests and counselling.”
