A grandmother was brutally raped by her grandson.

The 77-year-old woman of South Africa, was sexually assaulted by her 20-year-old grandson in front of her disabled husband.

The grandfather who is ill, was unable to help his wife and was forced to watch helplessly as she was being raped.

The grandparents said that they raised the grandson at their home in JB Mangaung, Bloemfontein.

Police spokesman Constable Peter Kareli said that the grandson arrived at the home about 6:00 p.m., while the grandma was busy cleaning her kitchen.

“He jumped on her and beat her with his fists. She tried to scream for help, but her husband could only listen as his wife endured pain and suffering,” Kareli said.

After the rape, the suspect fled the house. The victim then managed to run to the neighbors for help, and the Kagisanong Police were called to the scene.

A manhunt was launched and the grandson was arrested three days later. He was found hiding in a landfill. He was accused of rape and will be brought before the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court.
