Alleged rapist scales 36-floor apartment block to knife accuser

Nov 8, 2007, 2:26 GMT

Hong Kong – An alleged rapist scaled a high-rise block of flats in Hong Kong to climb into a 24th floor apartment and repeatedly stab his accuser, police said Thursday.

The attacker, on bail for the alleged rape, then used ropes to abseil down the block of flats and escape after the woman’s horrified mother called police early Wednesday morning.

The 22-year-old victim, who is believed to be the ex-girlfriend of the attacker, was in critical condition in hospital Thursday after being stabbed seven or eight times in the vicious assault.

It was unclear whether the attacker climbed up to the 24th floor apartment from the ground or abseiled down from the top of the 36-storey block before carrying out his attack, police said.

The attacker and the woman are believed to have split up earlier this year, apparently triggering the alleged rape for which the man was arrested and then bailed in October.

I have been running a short series on the hundreds of women sexually tortured, mutilated and murdered in Guatemala. I have decided to post the story of Manuela Sac Haz on to ‘A speak out of male violence’ instead of my personal blog.

*Warning triggering content*

In Guatemala an average of 10 women are being brutally murdered every single week. Many are raped, mutilated and tortured before they die – sometimes for prolonged periods. Yet the authorities are failing to investigate these murders. As a result, the murders continue to kill with impunity.
