It is believed that the victim had gone to visit a friend at Tambotie when he met an unknown 27-year-old woman. The two proceeded to the woman's flat after they had reportedly agreed to do "business"- explained as a consensus to have sex in exchange for cash.
According to the police reports, the victim handed the woman an amount of R30. She allegedly insisted on more and subsequently searched his pockets. It is believed that the suspect later demanded the victim's backpack, which had a laptop inside. When he resisted, the suspect allegedly pushed the victim out of the flat through an open window.
The victim is believed to have suffered at least a broken wrist and is receiving medical treatment at a local hospital, while the suspect will be charged with attempted murder and is expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court soon.
