Son arrested for allegedly raping his own mother

A man has been arrested on suspicion of raping his own mother, police have said.

The suspect, 28, was arrested on Saturday after his mother, 50, identified him as the alleged rapist.

She was attacked on Friday night as she walked home from a pub in Willowvale, South Africa, at around 7pm.

Her attacker ran up behind her and dragged her to the ground before raping her, police said.

Police spokesperson Captain Jackson Manatha said: ‘It is alleged that the victim was [walking] from a local tavern at Phaphasini Locality, Mboya Village, Willowvale on Friday at about 7pm.

‘She was on her way home. The victim felt some footsteps from behind.

‘She continued walking until the person from behind grabbed her.

‘She was dragged far from the road and the suspect accosted her. She was then raped by the suspect.’

Police said the suspect ran from the scene, but the victim later identified ‘her own biological son’ as her alleged attacker.

Her son will appear before magistrates today on a charge of rape.

Manatha added: ‘Commander Brigadier Ngangema Xakavu strongly condemned the alleged rape of the victim especially by the suspect who was supposed to protect her as his mother.’
