A 98 year old woman is nursing serious injuries after being attacked and raped by a 34 year old man in Sinoko village, Namunyiri sub location, Likuyani Sub County.

Speaking to West Media, the granny who lives alone narrated how the suspect gained entry into her house after breaking the window before attacking her in the wee hours of the night.

She said she tried to wrestle him unsuccessfully and her efforts to cry for help were futile as the suspect stuffed a piece of cloth in her mouth and tried to strangle her before she surrendered.

The suspect then raped her at will leaving her unconscious and later fled the house at around 2am  before the granny was rescued in the morning and taken to Mabusi health centre for treatment.

The incident has been bitterly condemned by the granny’s family appealing for justice arguing the suspect is a well-known criminal.
