“We had gotten to the car park and into the car before my fiancee [Saumu] asked to go to the washroom. When she got there, two men followed her and locked the door. They tore her blouse and wanted to rape her. She raised the alarm.

That was when Anwar left the car and rushed to her aid. He threw a rock into the washroom through the window to scare them. They unlocked the doors and let Saumu go.

“They come out apologizing saying ‘Oh we did not want to do anything’. I wanted it to be physical but Saumu calmed me down saying, we may make headlines in the media over fighting.”


He continued recounting how the assault was then carried out by other men believed to be in the same gang as those who had tried to sexually assault Saumu accosted them.
