Toulouse. Rape of a 96-year-old woman at her home: a suspect released, what we know
By Guillaume Laurent
The custody of the man suspected of raping on Saturday a 96 year old woman at his home, was lifted. “The person arrested was released on Sunday”, indicates this Monday, November 21, 2022 the prosecution to Toulouse news. The suspect in question “was not recognized” by witnesses and, after investigation, “was not there at the time of the facts”.
“Traces of proven violence”
In this case, the investigators of the Departmental Security take care not to jostle the victim, very old and all the more fragile after this attack. Still according to the prosecution, “the statements of the victim have evolved on the existence of a rape, or an aggravated rape”.
In view of “the seriousness of the facts”, the prosecution specifies that the old lady was “seen by the medical examiner”, who “confirmed traces of violence on the arms”. The investigation continues, and remains, to this day, open for “aggravated rape”.
DNA analyzes in progress
To lighten the gray areas, the prosecution is awaiting the results of the requested DNA analysis, in order to learn more about the sexual abuse that the individual allegedly imposed on the nonagenarian, “which could be of the order of fellatio”.
Put on the run by the home nurse
It was around 7:45 a.m. on Saturday when the old lady was attacked at her home on rue des Jumeaux, in the Matabiau district, by a young man who, she later explained, would have raped her. This is home nursing son, coming to pay him his daily visit, who surprised the individual at her home, and put him on the run, before calling the police.
A little less than two hours later, a suspect had been arrested, so he was released. The investigations of the knowledge brigade to the people of the Departmental Directorate of Public Security (DDSP) are continuing to determine the precise nature of the attack, and to find the perpetrator.
