A 24-year old man has pleaded guilty to the violent assault and attempted rape of a 99-year-old woman in her home in Melbourne, Australia.
Christopher Valle, 24, pleaded guilty to six charges including attempted rape, indecent assault and aggravated burglary.
The Victorian County Court heard the man knocked on the door of a house last September, less than an hour after being fired from nearby Caulfield racecourse.
After telling the 99-year-old owner he needed to check her property, he threw her on the bed and violently assaulted her before fleeing with cash and a credit card.
He was later arrested in Brisbane.
The court heard the woman pleaded with him and repeatedly told him she was nearly 100 years old.
In her victim impact statement the woman said she thought he was a nice young man when she let him into her home, and she still cannot understand why he did what he did.
Valle sat in court red-faced as the victim's daughter described his crime as an atrocity.
The daughter told the court the attack has taken an emotional toll on her mother's life.
Valle will be sentenced at a later date.
