City police have arrested a 30-year-old man on charges of raping an octogenarian near Begur Road on Friday. The 85-year-old victim, a daily wage labourer with drinking issues, routinely pestered customers to buy her a drink at a bar near Nayanappanahalli.

On Friday evening, after receiving some money, she drank to her fill and was spotted on a footpath in an inebriated state. Initially, when 30-year-old suspect Ravi carried the woman on his shoulders and walked away, locals presumed he was assisting her. It was only after the woman screamed for help that they found him sexually abusing her at an isolated spot, the police said. Ravi tried to flee but onlookers handed him over to Hulimavu police. Based on medical tests, police have confirmed rape and have booked a case against Ravi under the relevant IPC sections.
