A mother was horrified when she walked in on her husband raping their daughter.
A woman in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, told police that she went out shopping and left her husband to care for their 13-year-old daughter.
However, when the mother returned earlier than expected, she found her husband having sex with their young daughter. The woman went shopping at 6:30 pm and returned only to find her husband raping the teen in the bathroom.
The husband, who realized that he was caught in the act, ran away from the house, and tried to commit suicide by cutting his wrists and neck, according to a witness.
Police officers were looking for the man after he ran away. He was located many hours later. At about 1:30 pm the man was found at a hospital where he was being treated for the cuts, which he inflicted on himself in attempt to commit suicide.
After being questioned, the girl said that her father had been violating her for the past year.
Lieutenant Joey Jeevan said that when the man is released from the hospital he will be arrested on rape charges.
