Police are investigating the rape and attempted murder of a Dennery woman in her 50’s.
The woman who is currently hospitalized recounted the horrific Saturday, October 8, evening when she was raped, brutally chopped and left for dead by a man she described as a ‘friend.’
The traumatized woman said that she was offered a drop to her home by the male assailant, who diverted and drove his car in a area with thick vegetation, where he forced her to have sex with him.
Once he was done, the man allegedly instructed the woman to wipe her self. But while doing so, the woman said the man took out a sharp instrument from his car trunk and started chopping her.
In an attempt to block her face, the woman placed her hands in the air and sustained multiple chop wounds.
The woman claims that the man then proceeded to put his hand over her mouth to stop her from screaming. Strangely, the man then left her behind, but not before taking her cash and mobile phone.
The woman said she managed to run towards a public road and stopped a white van that assisted her to the police station, where she told them what happened. She was later taken to hospital for treatment.
A man has since been arrested by police and is assisting with the investigations.
