Bloemfontein – A 45-year-old woman was allegedly raped by a man in front of her son in her home in Virginia, Free State police said on Monday.

She woke up around 05:00 on Friday to find the suspect in her room and tried to fight him off, but he held a knife to her chest and overpowered her, Captain Malebo Khosana said.

He ordered her young son, who was in the room with her, to go back to sleep.

“The unknown man allegedly raped her in the presence of her young son, who was covering himself with blankets crying after being ordered to sleep by the attacker,” Khosana said.

He demanded money from the woman and fled with two cellphones.

Anyone with information about the attack could contact Constable Mokaeane on 073-472-7987.
