LAMPANG - A man was arrested after he tried to rape an 81-year-old woman in her home in Muang district, a report said on Friday. 

Police said the 53-year-old man sneaked into the elderly woman's house on Thursday night and tried to rape her while her relatives were at a neighbour's house next door. The victim smacked the man across the face and shouted for help.

The attacker panicked and tried to escape through the front door. He was confronted by the victim's 49-year-old son, who punched him to the ground before rushing to his mother's aid.
