ANDERSON, Ind. A 17-year-old youth faces rape and other charges in a July assault on a 93-year-old central Indiana woman.

Anderson police also charged the youth with burglary, criminal confinement and strangulation Monday.

The victim, Amelia Rudolf, said she was afraid she would not see justice in her lifetime. The Associated Press does not normally name victims of sexual assault but Rudolph participated in a police news conference Monday.

Police say the youth lived within in a block of the woman's house. Investigators say he broke into it, then sexually assaulted her. She had been sleeping at the time and awoke to find the youth in her bedroom.

Anderson is about 25 miles northeast of Indianapolis
