A 100-year-old Kansas woman was raped in her home early this week, Wichita police confirmed on Friday.

The woman walked to a neighbor’s house at about 7:15 a.m. on Tuesday saying there were two people inside her house, Capt. Troy Livingston said.

[su_center_ad]“Officers arrived and determined that her house had been broken into,” Livingston said.

According to, the woman, who lives alone, said she was awakened in the middle of the night by the intruders who were inside her house.

“There’s some confusion” on the part of the victim, likely because of her age, “but we’ve worked through that,” Livingston said.

Medical testing confirmed that the woman was sexually assaulted, he said.

Authorities determined that one or more burglars forced their way inside through a back door.

“The place is very neat and tidy,” Livingston said.

“We believe this was a burglary and the sexual assault was kind of a crime of opportunity,” he said.

“All rapes are a deplorable crime but when you look at the age of the victim, it becomes a little bit more concerning, a little bit more disturbing,” Livingston. said  “It’s a vile crime, and the fact that somebody victimized a 100-year-old female is a little bit harder for the detectives to really grasp.”

    Still in her own home at 100, I hope this horrific violation doesn’t change for this woman. Would it be wrong to hope this scum accidently falls into a powered woodchipper?

    I think we should avoid the mindset that there are “degrees” of rape.

    Still, the age of the victim makes this crime especially vile in my opinion.

    Sometimes it’s even embarrassing to be a human being.

      Rape is an act of violence and control for weak people. This is a horrible thing wether the rape victim is 1 or 100 years old
