Granny raped while grandson studies in next room

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

"The elderly lady was in her bedroom at around 18:00 on Monday, when a man climbed through her window and raped her," 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 only scream for help once he had fled.

"There have been no arrests as yet, but we have information and we are investigating," he said.
