A good-natured woman, 59, has become a victim of attempted rape performed by her neighbor in Nqadu Village in Willowvale, the Eastern Cape. According to the reports, the man asked the elderly resident for a place to sleep on last Sunday but instead tried to force her into sexual intercourse.
Police spokesperson, Captain Jackson Manatha said it was not the first time the suspect requested such permission so the householder kindly let him in, offering a separate bed in one of the rooms. However, during midnight she heard some weird noises.
“The victim woke up at about 11:10 pm and found the suspect trying to rape her. She saw the suspect as the lights were not switched off. The victim fought back and the suspect ran for his dear life,” Manatha said in a statement.
The perpetrator will appear in the Willowvale Magistrate’s Court on Monday on charges of attempted rape.
