A case of rape is being investigated by the Ibisi police after an 86-year-old woman became a victim of brutal attack by an unknown man i nKwaZulu-Natal on Sunday.
Police spokesperson Capt Nqobile Gwala said the woman had been assaulted in her house in Ibisi township. She was asleep when the unknown man broke into her house and sexually abused her in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The ANC Women’s League in the province called this inhumane act of violence a “distasteful incident” also reporting the elderly woman’s granddaughter having been raped by the same perpetrator.
The Ibisi police are now checking that information but have been unable to comment on the second rape so far.
