Blood spattered the pavement, her jeans were torn in several places and her hands were full of stab wounds.
These were just some of the pictures sent to The Star yesterday morning after a woman was attacked and robbed in Hillbrow, Johannesburg in South Africa on her way to work.
“I realised something was wrong when I saw the two men who were behind the woman separate and approach her from each side. There was a scuffle and shouting – they were grabbing her.
“She was trying to stop them and protect herself, but they had knives and were cutting her.”
The witness said people tried shouting at the two men to stop but were afraid to get close because they were armed.
“When the police arrived, the men ran away, and people went to her to help her.
“She was in a lot of pain and she just kept bleeding – her clothes were ripped and she was crying.
