A 30-year-old man was arrested for allegedly raping his 60-year-old aunt at her home in Thaba Nchu in the Free State, police said on Friday.

The Aunt was sleeping when the man knocked on her door, Sergeant Martin Xuma of Free State police said.

When the woman opened the door, she found that it was her nephew. The 30-year-old suspect pushed her, and allegedly raped her on the floor. She was not dressed as she had already gone to bed.

“The 60-year-old did not want to report the matter to the police so she would not tarnish the image of the family but her younger sister (the mother of the man) alerted the Selosesha Police Station,” said Xuma.

The suspect was arrested at one of his relatives home on Thursday.
