A 23-year-old ou who attempted rape is having difficulty licking his wounds after his would-be victim bit off his tongue.

The man is behind bars after attempting to rape a woman, who fought back and bit off a chunk of his tongue, this past weekend in Reitz near Bethlehem, Free State police said.

The suspect briefly appeared in the Reitz Magistrates’ Court on Monday following his arrest just hours after attacking a woman, 38.

“It is alleged the victim was attacked by an unknown knife-wielding man while entering her home in Petsana-Reitz. During the struggle, she managed to sink her teeth in the suspect’s tongue,” a police statement said. 

“The suspect let her go and went to the hospital where he received medical treatment before being placed under arrest, wearing the same clothes which had been described by the victim.”

He will appear in court again on Friday.The man is behind bars after attempting to rape a woman, who fought back and bit off a chunk of his tongue, this past weekend in Reitz near Bethlehem, Free State police said.
