A Colorado teenager has been arrested and is facing felony charges after he allegedly cut off his grandmother's panties and raped her while she slept.
News9 reports that the 15-year-old, whose name was not released due to his age, was visiting his 59-year-old grandmother in Edmond, Oklahoma earlier this month. The woman, whose name has also not been released, takes medications that make her sleep.
On the night of July 14, the woman called police to report that her grandson raped her. The grandmother allegedly woke up on the morning of July 12 and noticed her panties were missing. She later found the underwear under her bed. Court documents show that she woke up to find the boy thrusting against her.
The woman told her son, the boy's uncle, what had happened to her. He arrived and took the teen to the police department.
According to the uncle, the boy confessed that he "cut off her panties while she was in bed and had sex with grandma" and that he "had sex with grandma on the couch."
The boy was arrested and charged with first degree rape.
Incredibly, this is far from the first time that this sort of crime has occurred. In recent years, several notable cases of men raping their own grandmothers have been reported.
In March 2010, Lee Aaron Moorer of Detroit was found guilty of repeatedly raping his step-grandmother and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
And last April, a New Orleans man was arrested and charged with raping his 85-year-old grandmother, who is also a double amputee.
