Police in Berbice have arrested four men in the Corentyne area who are accused of attacking and raping an elderly woman in her home.
The woman, who is said to be in her 90’s, was discovered yesterday morning by her caregiver in a bloody state. She told the caregiver about the attack by the men and was taken to a hospital, where it was confirmed that she was sexually assaulted.
A police report said the woman who lives alone told the caregiver of being choked and beaten by the men who invaded her house. Police investigations led to the arrest of the suspects as the probe is ongoing.
Charges are expected to be filed in the matter later this week.
