Mankweng, Limpopo - An elderly Limpopo man accused of raping a deaf youth appeared in the Mankweng Magistrate's Court on Friday, police said.

The man, 69, would be back in court on January 21 for a bail application. He remained in custody, Constable Moses Molepo said.

He was arrested on Wednesday for the crime that was committed on Tuesday.

The 18-year-old teenager was attacked when she went to the outside toilet at her home.

“Her relative caught (the) suspect in the act,” said Molepo.

He said the man fled the scene but was caught by community members, who alerted police. - Sapa
