A 23 year-old woman stabbed a male intruder who allegedly tried to sexually assault her in her house in Tatakamotonga on Sunday 23, police said.
The woman, who was sleeping alone in her house, stabbed the 20 year-old man after he broke in and attempted to rape her, according to Police.
The accused, whose name has not been released, sustained three stab wounds from a knife the woman hid under her pillow.
The suspect fled the scene but police arrested him shortly.
He was taken to hospital and had been receiving treatment.
He was charged with indecent assault and was expected to appear at the Mu’a Magistrate’s Court this week.
The woman escaped charges because she acted in self-defence, according to police.
