HOUSTON -

A 67- year-old grandmother was brutally raped inside of her apartment.

The rape victim in this case is described as a very sweet-hearted little lady who volunteers her time rescuing homeless cats.

According to the grandmother, a black male wearing a navy blue do-rag and carrying a backpack knocked on her door, shoved her inside and attacked her, raping her multiple times.

The victim said while the man was sexually assaulting her he kept telling her, "I like old white women, I've been watching you."

Ever since the attack in May, the victim and her neighbor say women all over the apartment complex have been living in fear as well knowing the rapist could come back.

However, the accused rapist, John Hayward Milstead is in the Harris County Jail facing charges of aggravated sexual assault of an elderly person.

Milstead is being held on $100,000 bail.
