Adding another crime to Austrian man Josef Fritzl's name, a grief-stricken woman on April 29 revealed that how he destroyed her life by raping her.

Fritzl was recently held guilty of holding his daughter as a prisoner in a dungeon for almost 24 years, repeatedly raping her and fathering seven children with her.

Lower Austria police said in a statement that the 42-year-old Elisabeth Fritzl, was held captive by her rapist dad Josef after he lied to relatives that she had run away.

Following the release of the news, another of Fritzl's victim, who would not be named, revealed that the 'Satan' raped her in October 1967.

"I was raped by Fritzl in October 1967. When I saw his picture yesterday, I knew, yes, that is him. Those eyes. That is how I recognised him. I could barely sleep," the Sun quoted the victim, as saying.

She went on: "I was newly-married, my husband was working night shifts. I woke up and realized someone was taking the bedclothes off me.

"He had wrapped a dishcloth around the handle of a kitchen knife from my kitchen. Then he pushed it against my neck and said, 'If you scream, I will kill you'. Then he raped me. Before he left he said he would kill me if I said anything."

Fritzl was jailed for 18 months.

The woman said: "It came out in the court case that he was a voyeur. He would ride around the area on his bike and watched everything.

"It was said he had four children, one was still very young. That must have been the poor woman locked up." (ANI)
