A man was arrested on a charge of rape after allegedly breaking into the home of his mother and raping her, police in Zimbabwe said.

Bulawayo police said that they have arrested the 32-year-old man, who was not identified, after being accused of breaking into the home of his 53-year-old mother, entering her bedroom and raping her as she slept in bed.

In court, the suspect, who works as a mechanic, said that his mother made up the story because she regularly fights with his father.

According to the victim’s statement to the police, around 7:00 p.m. on Monday, the son came into her room. She yelled at him to leave, but he jumped on her bed and raped her.

The mother did not push her son away because she was afraid of him. After the son left the home, the woman was taken to the Mpilo Central Hospital, where she was treated and released.
