A south African man was left in bad shape and traumatized after being kidnapped by three woman, drugged, and raped.
Rape and sexual assault are at an all time high in South Africa, and the male population doesn’t report rape as often because it is not taken seriously by the police.
This man, who remains unnamed as the case is still under investigation, was picked up by a taxi on a normal evening. As the taxi was driving, it began to rapidly change direction. He was injected with some sort of liquid and woke up in an unmarked room.
The three women then took turns raping him and giving him more drugs. Eventually, he was dumped in an empty field. When he woke up, he was able to contact help.
The Daily Mail reports:
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.
