A man has been charged with raping a pensioner during a burglary of her home.
Antoine Devon Pettis, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, was tracked down through DNA evidence and arrested for allegedly breaking into the home of a 101-year-old and then raping her after finding her in bed, The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.
The man told police he hadn’t planned to rape the woman, and did so as an afterthought. He even told detectives that had he planned the sexual assault he would have brought a condom.
The victim was taken to hospital for her injuries.
Pettis, who was wanted for failing to appear in a 2013 drug case, is being held in the jail. He could face up to 55 years in prison if convicted of sexual assault, aggravated battery and burglary.
