An elderly man was arrested on a charge of rape after being accused of raping his two nieces while babysitting them, police in Zimbabwe said.

Now, the 87-year-old man of Chiredzi, has been found not guilty of rape due to lack of evidence.

According to the police investigation, the parents of the 6 and 7-year-old girls left their children in the care of the 87-year-old man as they went to work.

At some point during the day, the elderly man raped both girls one after the other.

Later that evening, when the mother of the 7-year-old girl noticed that she had difficulty walking, she took her to a hospital, where it was determined that the girl was raped.

The parents immediately accused the elderly man of raping their daughters. The man denied the allegations, saying that he was no longer sexually active.

In court, the elderly man told the judge that the parents of the girls attempted to extort money from him in exchange for dropping the charges.
