A man hailed down a communal taxi and got in where there were three women already there. They ordered him into the front seat, where he was given a shot of an unknown substance. When he awoke, he was lying on a single bed in an unfamiliar place. The women forced him to drink and energy drink before they set upon him and gang raped him for days.
A South African man was left traumatized after being drugged and raped ‘numerous’ times over three days by three female assailants.
The 23-year-old’s ordeal began when he hailed down a communal taxi in eastern Pretoria on Friday – which had three young women inside.
The taxi began to change direction and the man was ordered to sit in the front.
He was then injected within an unknown substance and passed out, TimesLive reported.
South African Police Service Captain Colette Weilbach said: ‘He stated that he woke up in an unfamiliar room on a single bed.
‘The female suspects then allegedly forced the man to drink an energy drink before taking turns raping him numerous times a day.
‘The South African Police Service take all sexual offences seriously regardless of gender.
‘[We assure] all victims of these types of crimes that we will carry out robust investigations to bring offenders to justice.’
The victim was later dumped semi-naked in a field, where he managed to flag down a passing car.
Rape and sexual violence against both men and women are at epidemic levels in South Africa.
It is estimated that more than half-a-million rapes are committed annually in the country.
Now, maybe I’m wrong but it seems to me that there is an easy answer to the rape crises there. Why not get the male and female rapists together and let them go at it. The government could build safe houses, so that when a rapist feels the urge he can stop by the clubhouse and pick up a man or a woman to go.
