A Diyarbakır court has sentenced a potential rapist to 7.5 years in jail after his attempt to assault his 18-year-old aunt was prevented by the woman’s “heroic” cat.
The woman, identified only by the initials H.T., avoided an attempted rape by her sister’s son-in-law in 2014 after her cat named “Minnoş” lunged at the 20-year-old attacker, identified only by the initials S.B.
“I was faced with a villain, a pervert. He could have killed me but my cat saved my life by attacking him. [Minnoş] is my hero,” H.T. told reporters.
