AN ELDERLY woman was recovering in hospital last night after being subjected to a sickening sex attack in her home.
The 87-year-old pensioner called police to her home in Caernarfon at 3am yesterday to report the assault.
Police arrested a man, 34, within hours and he was being questioned last night. No-one else was being sought in connection with the attack, a spokeswoman said.
"North Wales Police received a call just after 3am on Saturday morning from an elderly woman reporting that she had been the victim of a sexual assault in her home in the Caernarfon area," she said.
The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor, but her exact condition was unknown last night.
