A 16-year-old North Carolina boy is facing charges of rape and kidnapping after police say he forced an 83-year-old woman inside her home and brutally raped her.
Robert McFadden is being held in jail on $138,000 bond for the attacking the great-grandmother in her northeast Charlotte apartment.
The victim, whose name is being withheld, is being cared for by her eight children.
Her daughter Catherine Jimenz spoke out to reporters outside a court room saying,
“It’s horrifying — the most horrible thing I have ever had to experience in my life. My mother is a fragile, little 88-pound woman so I can just imagine the horror that she felt.”
When McFadden appeared in court, he had no family there to support him.
