We need to get this sicko off the streets that’s for sure.Anybody going to sexually assault a 99yr old lady in her home is a deeply depraved and sick man.Keep an eye out, and hopefully someone is going to find you soon.Its a great image so there are few places to hide young man, and there will be even fewer in jail.I hope they teach you a lesson in there!
The woman was home alone when the man knocked on the front door of her Koornang Rd house and forced his way in between 10.30-11am last Saturday.
The man, believed to be aged between 17 and 20, bashed the woman over the head with a blunt object and sexually assaulted her over 30 terrifying minutes before fleeing on foot when the woman activated a personal duress alarm.
Detective Insp Glenn Davies described the attack as deeply disturbing.
“This woman is a grandmother and a great grandmother and I think people in our community would be absolutely appalled by this and anyone with information on this should come forward to police,” he said.
The depraved offender verbally tormented his victim as he carried out the attack.
“There was a conversation that took place. It was part of the assault as well and it has left the victim extremely distressed and upset about this,” Det Insp Davies said.
The woman remained in hospital yesterday with cuts and bruises to her head and legs.
“This has had a profound effect on this elderly woman,” Det Insp Davies said. “Obviously the callous disregard for this person is of great concern to us.”
Police remain puzzled as to the pervert’s motive.
“There were items that were disturbed in the house and we’re still establishing if anything was taken,” Det Insp Davies said.
“I don’t know what the motive would be for someone to break into a house where there was a woman of 99-years of age and to physically and sexually assault her.”
The man gained entry into the woman’s house after knocking on the door and forcing his way inside.
“We believe he may have been there earlier and may have been loitering or stalking the area before the attack occurred and there is a good possibility that people may have seen a person in the area beforehand,” Det Insp Davies said.
Police are warning people to be cautious of answering their door and urged elderly people living alone to maintain contact with family and friends.
The man is described as Caucasian, 17-20 years of age, about 160cm tall, with a thin build and brown straight messy hair.
He was wearing a distinct shirt that had the words ‘Al fresco’ written across the front.
