A man allegedly raped his own mother just hours after she threw him a party to welcome him home from prison.
The 42-year-old suspect, named in his Ukrainian village as Vitaliy, is said to have broken into 62-year-old Nadiya’s bedroom and viciously attacked her as she screamed for help.
Vitaliy had just been released after serving five years for battering a man to death.
His mother was so pleased to see him when he arrived home to the village of Abramivka in central Ukraine’s Poltava Oblast region that she arranged a party to celebrate.
She told local media: “Some of his friends came to the party. We had some drink. Everything seemed to be okay.
“But in the evening, after the guests left, he attacked me.”
After saying goodbye to her guests, Nadiya went to bed and fell asleep. A few hours later Vitaliy broke into her bedroom and abused her.
Nadiya tried to resist but Vitaliy allegedly beat her.
According to the victim, whose house is on the outskirts of the village, she called for help but nobody heard her screams.
After the disgusting attack, Nadiya reported her son to the police.
She said: ”I was afraid for my life and decided not to be silent. I do not want to be regularly raped at my own home.
”I cannot treat him as my son anymore.”
Vitaliy, who fled the scene, was found hiding in a field nearby and arrested.
Police spokesman Yury Sulaev said: ”The suspect was charged with rape and taken into custody. He faces up to five years in prison if found guilty. The investigation is ongoing.”
Residents of the village, which is home to 240 people, were terrified after learning about the incident.
Local Svitlana Grechka said: ”We cannot believe that such a wild incident occurred in our calm small village.”
