The male suspect in the October 8, 2016 rape and chopping incident of a female in Dennery has been charged with the offences of rape, attempted murder and stealing from person, the police have confirmed.
Police said the charges were laid against the alleged perpetrator on Friday, October 14, 2016.
The woman claims 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.
The victim had described the man as a ‘friend,’ who she never expected would have done that to her.
