JOHANNESBURG — A pregnant woman in South Africa’s Mpumalanga bit the penis of a man who raped her in front of her five-year-old child, police said on Wednesday as they searched for the ‘severely injured’ attacker.

South African hospitals are on the alert for a man with an injured penis.

The alleged incident took place on Monday on a plantation on the Spionkop Road outside White River, according to Mpumalanga spokesman Brigadier Leonard Hlathi.

The three-month pregnant woman was allegedly raped at knifepoint in front of her five-year-old daughter after two men — in a white Toyota Tazz — picked up them up while they were hitchhiking.

Instead, she was driven into the bushes and raped at knife-point, police said.

They now hope his injuries will mean the man can be brought to justice.

“We appeal to all health institutions that should they found a man with an injured private part, they must as soon as possible contact Constable Solly Mabuza,” Mpumalanga police said in a statement.

The men, according to the statement, were driving a white Toyota Tazz near the town of White River. They initially threatened the woman, at gunpoint, warning her not to scream.

After she bit her attacker, he fled and was ‘currently not found’, the statement explained.

Rape and sexual assault remain a large problem in South Africa. According to Africa Check, more than 109 rapes were reported each day on average during 2016/17 – totalling 39,828 incidents.
