A pregnant woman was taken to a hospital after she was raped at knifepoint.

Police in South Africa said they were looking for a man with severely injured private parts after he was assaulted by a pregnant woman who bit him in self-defense.

Police spokesman Leonard Hlathi said that the woman, who was in the third month of her pregnancy, was raped at knifepoint.

Hlathi said that the pregnant mother was with her young daughter when she hitched a ride with two men in Mpumalanga.

During the trip, one of the men forcefully raped her at knifepoint in front of her child, police said in a statement.

The woman managed to bite the private parts of the man, causing him to flee from the scene.

Police have appealed to all health institutions to contact them if a man comes in for treatment for an injury to his private parts.
