Butterworth - A man has been arrested after he allegedly raped a 75-year-old woman in Centane, Eastern Cape police said on Sunday.

"It is alleged that the victim was sleeping alone at her house [on Monday, August 3] when she felt somebody inside her bed," Captain Jackson  Manatha said.

"When she looked at the intruder she recognised him and called by his name to stop what he was doing.

"The 75-year-old granny cried out very loud and her neighbour came to her rescue."

The alleged rapist then ran away. He was later found by police and arrested on Friday.

The 52-year-old man was expected to appear in the Centane Magistrate Court on Tuesday.
