On­ce ho­me, he re­pe­a­ted­ly as­saul­ted the wo­man by hit­ting her with a belt, stab­bing her on her feet with a kni­fe and bur­ning her with a hot e­lec­tric i­ron on her fo­re­he­ad, fa­ce and bo­dy. The sus­pect then loc­ked the wo­men, who ap­pa­rent­ly was na­ked by that ti­me, in the dwel­ling and went to sleep. She ap­pa­rent­ly beg­ged him to let her go but he re­fu­sed. An ey­e­wit­nes­ses la­ter no­ti­ced a con­ti­nu­a­ti­on of the as­sault on the na­ked wo­man in the street. The wo­man was hos­pi­ta­li­sed and tre­a­ted for her in­ju­ries. The victim has sin­ce re­que­sted the po­li­ce to re­tract the ca­se as she is le­a­ving Mos­sel Bay and in­tends ne­ver to re­turn.
