Rapist tries to silence victim


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.

Frankly, I would say he was guilty of the rape. Alleged my ass.
