(METRO UK) – A man is recovering in hospital after he was allegedly raped when he was raped by two women in South Africa.
Police say the 25-year-old was hitchhiking in Polokwane in Limpopo province when the middle-aged women stopped to give him a lift.
They then held him at gunpoint and he said he was ordered to drink a substance before they raped him. He is currently in a serious condition in hospital after they dumped him at the roadside in the town of Tzaneen.
Lt Col Moatshe Ngoepe told Capricorn Voice: ‘After the ordeal, it is alleged they drove further with the victim and dropped him off in a secluded area near Tzaneen CBD, where he proceeded to the Tzaneen Police Station and reported the matter.’
The alleged rape is the latest in a series of attacks by so-called ‘semen bandits’ in the Limpopo region.
In May this year a 23-year-old man alleged that he was repeatedly raped by a gang of three women over a three-day period. He caught a taxi in Pretoria which then started driving in the wrong direction and he was injected with an unknown substance that caused him to pass out. When he woke up he said he was in a room on a single bed and was forced to drink energy drinks as the women raped him.
In July a teacher was kidnapped at gunpoint by three women who offered to give him a lift while he was waiting for a bus in Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe.
Another teacher on his way to Bulawayo was gang raped by four women in February.
And in 2011 three women were found to have 31 condoms filled with semen when they were stopped at a police road block.
