A thief had a part of his tongue bit off by a woman he was trying to rape after breaking into the victim’s house in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh last week.

Police officers in Cau Ke District, Tra Vinh said on Sunday that they were detaining a local man, 23-year-old Son Sa Rot, for questioning on suspicion of “theft” and “rape”.

A preliminary investigation revealed that Rot was walking around Phong Thanh Commune in Cau Ke district with the intention of stealing money and other property on May 7. The man claimed he was flat broke. 

He set his eyes on the residence of T.T.T., a 38-year-old local woman, and waited until the neighborhood became deserted to break into the back of the house.

Rot had managed to steal a mobile phone when he saw T. sleeping in the house and proceeded to sexually assault the victim.

The woman woke up, fought back and bit off a part of the perpetrator’s tongue, prompting him to flee.

Rot was later taken into police custody while at his house in Cau Ke District.

The man has confessed to his alleged crimes, according to the district’s police officers.
