A 33-year-old man from Hans Kekana View in Hammanskraal, Tshwane, SA, has been arrested after he cut his 29-year-old wife’s private parts.
The man suspected that his wife was cheating and after mutilating her, he attempted to slit her throat.
He reportedly phoned two of his wife’s friends after the dastardly deed.
One of the friends who didn’t want to be named said she was shocked and called neighbours for help.
Neighbour Mmaphefo Sebidi (35) said: “The husband didn’t even try to run away when people arrived on the scene. He told them about his evil deeds and showed them his wife’s private parts. Some residents, mostly women, got angry and started assaulting him with bricks.”
The paramedics soon arrived and took the woman to hospital with her private parts packed on ice.
When the cops arrived, furious residents were trying to force the suspect out of his shack to beat him.
One woman in the crowd screamed: “Give us that man. We need to slice his 4-5 into pieces.”
The suspect was escorted to a police van after more cops were called to the scene.
Police Lieutenant Sarah Lesabane said: “The suspect has been arrested for attempted murder and is under police guard at a hospital.
“He will appear in court once he is discharged.”
