The Provincial Commissioner in the Northern Cape said in a statement on Thursday that a 32-year-old man was arrested in connection with the rape of a 74-year-old woman.
“The incident was reportedly committed on 16 June 2020 at the victim’s home in Siyathemba. It is alleged that, during a heated argument with the girlfriend, the girlfriend was allegedly assaulted, as well as the sister. The two sisters fled and the suspect raped their grandmother,” the statement reads.
The police report says that a three-day activation plan was implemented and that the suspect was arrested on Thursday morning in the Olifantshoek region.
The SAPS says that the suspect will be expected to appear in the local Magistrate’s Court and that any application for bail will be rejected.
