A woman from Port Elizabeth has allegedly chopped off the penis of an alleged rapist.
Earlier, the man was accused of raping and murdering a 5-year-old girl. The body of the victim was discovered in a toilet cubicle in Rocklands not far away from the victim’s home.
According to police spokesperson Colonel Priscilla Naidu, the officers conducted a DNA test to find out whether the man was connected to the rape. Before the results were available, the victim’s mother decided to take justice in her hands.
The attack was allegedly conducted by the woman, her sister-in-law, and a family friend. On September 21, they found the man who they believed had murdered the girl and sliced his penis off.
The woman had been granted bail that was paid by a crime-fighting organisation ‘Enough is Enough’.
