    MPUMALANGA ~ Africa
    Woman shoots rapist with his own gun

    A man is in a coma after he raped a woman who fought back and shot him with his own gun, Mpumalanga police said on Tuesday.

    Police spokesperson Sergeant Charles Nkosi said the woman was walking home near Balfour on Monday night when a man wearing a balaclava approached her and threatened her with a firearm.

    She was pushed into the bushes nearby and raped, but managed to get hold of the firearm and shot her attacker in the back.

    She then fled to a nearby clinic where the police were called. The man was taken to hospital in a coma, said Nkosi.

    When police investigated the scene of the crime they found a shifting spanner, a crowbar and a bush knife presumably belonging to the attacker.

    Nkosi said a case of rape had been opened, but it appeared a case of attempted murder would also have to be opened.

    WHAT? Against the victim?? Self defense? I hope not. Now against the BG, that would be a good charge as WELL as a rape indictment.

    How do you guys interpret that statement? I cannot quite decide on the inference.

    Darned pity she had to suffer rape first - but seems lucky a sloppy BG was bad at gun control.

    Yes, Against The Bad Guy.

    "Nkosi said a case of rape had been opened, but it appeared a case of attempted murder would also have to be opened."

    The article is worded kinda goofy. Charges of Rape and Attempted Murder against the Wounded Perp & not the victim.
