A man was horrified when he was confronted by another man and ordered to pull his pants down.

The victim was assaulted, raped and robbed at knifepoint.

The 41-year-old victim said that the rape occurred on Sunday night, while he was on his way home to Limpopo, South Africa.

The man came up from behind and ordered the victim to remove his pants. “When I refused, the suspect took out a knife, pulled down my pants and raped me,” said the victim. “I felt so humiliated that I wish he would have killed me,” he added.

The rapist also took money from the victim’s pocket. Someone found the victim crying at the side of the road and called police.

The victim was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released.

To add to his pain, the other villagers laughed at him after learning about the rape. “They said that I am pregnant with the child of the rapist. I am traumatized and the mockery is not helping at all,” the victim said.

Warrant Officer Alson Mapindani of the Malamulele police said that the victim suffered minor injuries throughout his body while trying to fight off his attacker.

Police also said that more than 10 cases of rape and robbery have been reported in the area where the incident occurred in the last five months.

Police are investigating a number of cases of armed robbery and rape, but so far, no arrests have been made.

“We appeal to anyone with information to come forward,” police said.
