Johannesburg - An elderly Limpopo man accused of raping a deaf teen appeared in the Mankweng Magistrate's Court on Monday, police said.

Police spokesperson Moses Molepo said the 69-year-old man remained in custody and would apply for bail on 29 January.

He was arrested on 9 January after the 18-year-old was attacked when she went to the outside toilet at her home on 8 January.

"Her relative caught [the] suspect in the act," said Molepo said at the time.

He said the man fled the scene but was caught by community members, who alerted police.

    Why do these rapes only make headlines when the victim is somehow different? The rapes are all disgusting! Would anybody support a website that lists, names and shames every convicted rapist in the country?
