A 78-year-old woman from Tsolo, Eastern Cape, was raped by an unknown man while her grandson studied in the next room.

“The elderly lady was in her bedroom at about 6pm yesterday, when a man entered through the window and raped her,” the police’s Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela said.


“Her 18-year-old grandson was studying in the next room and didn’t hear anything.”


Fatyela said the suspect held a knife to the woman’s throat and she could scream for help only after he had fled.


“There has been no arrest as yet, but we have information and we are investigating,” Fatyela said. – Sapa
