ST ANN, Jamaica — The St Ann police are now probing the rape of a 94-year-old woman in the usually quiet Keith district in the parish this morning.

Police sources say the woman, who is an amputee, lives with her 59-year-old daughter who left the house in the district which is between Brown's Town and Discovery Bay, early this morning.

A short while later, a man reportedly entered the house by removing some window blades. He raped the elderly woman before making his escape. Nothing was stolen from the house.

The woman was later found by neighbours who took her to a doctor who confirmed that she had been raped.

Up to a short while ago detectives had not identified a suspect.
