“The woman, who said she could not believe what the husband’s friend wanted to do to her, begged him to allow her to go but the man was adamant and he forcefully pushed her to the ground.

“However, the attempt to rape the woman was unsuccessful even though the accused tore her underwear but she overpowered him.’’
