A 15-year-old Perth boy has pleaded guilty to raping, bashing and robbing an elderly Waikiki woman aged in her 80s.
The boy entered the woman’s house on October 13 and sexually penetrated her three times during the home invasion.
Appearing in Perth Children’s Court on Tuesday via video link from Banksia Hill Detention Centre, the boy slouched in his chair at times biting his nails as his eight charges were read to him.
He admitted to entering the elderly woman’s home, indecently and unlawfully assaulting her, raping her, using violence to obtain money and doing bodily harm to her.
Prosecutors recommended the boy be sentenced by the Children’s Court president due to the “very serious” nature of the charges.
