Woman, 93, Sexually Assaulted in Her Own Apartment by Intruder

Linda Trischitta, Sun Sentinel, February 24, 2015

A legally blind 93-year-old woman was able to pull an alarm and summon help from neighbors as a stranger battered and then sexually assaulted her in her apartment, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.

About 2:30 a.m. Monday, the woman had taken trash to the receptacle at the end of her hall and was surprised by Clyde Alvims Leandre, 22, of Delray Beach, according to Detective Ian Kuechler.

The incident happened in the Highland Gardens apartments at 331 Northeast 48th St. Each apartment has cords near beds and toilets that activate an emergency alarm as well as a hallway light outside a tenant’s door.

“In her condition, with sight issues and she is technically, legally blind, she knew where to reach for that cord when she was forced upon that bed,” Kuechler said during a press conference Monday at the Broward Sheriff’s headquarters in Fort Lauderdale.

The alarm, her cries for help as well as the light drew the attention of three neighbors who entered the apartment through its unlocked front door, Kuechler wrote in his report.

“Initially some of the other residents of the building attempted to subdue the subject,” the detective said. “However, they basically explained that he seemed to have about the strength of 10 men and was oblivious to them being in the room. He continued to grasp on to the female victim and restrained her in her bedroom.”

Four deputies responded to a 911 call and also tried to remove Leandre, who was not wearing pants, according to the detective’s report.

“He ignored their commands and he was tased,” Kuechler said. “It had zero affect on him. They issued several strikes to him, again. It took four men to remove him.”

Two deputies’ hands were hurt and they were treated at Broward Health North and released. Leandre and the victim were admitted to the same hospital. The woman’s back was injured during the incident and she was severely bruised, Kuechler said.


Leandre faces charges of burglary with assault or battery; sexual assault with a weapon; false imprisonment and resisting an officer without violence, the sheriff’s office said.

    Oh my gosh!! That poor lady! 🙁 that guy must’ve been on drugs or something to have so many people try to pull him off! I hope she recovers from this trauma.

      Didn’t anyone have a gun?

        Ya….nope. Someone should have

    • Bill Moore

      Oh my gosh!! That poor African! 🙁

      That guy was roughed up by the citizens and then by the police!! Looks like he’ll be able to sue them all and get a massive payday.

      I hope he recovers from his trauma.

      Just kidding,

      Nope! Nonhumans don’t have to be intoxicated to do heinous and deplorable things. Their low IQs and overall stoopidities, IMO, probably have an intoxicating effect on them as a rule.

  • John Smith

    Negroes can’t keep their hands off the white women, even 93y/o white women, who must still be a whole lot more attractive than the average negress.

    • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

      So true!!!

    • phillyguy

      what should be done to this animal is blinding with a red hot poker to the eyes and castrate him.

    • Bill Moore


      I knew a Caucasian woman whose mother was in a nursing home. Her mother told her that she was raped by the African orderly.

      The daughter tried to get something done about it, but ran up against a brick wall.

      The “system” protects these vermin. To do otherwise would be Racist.

      Any Africans working in such places should have their penis’s removed as a condition of being hired.

        I would have called in the legal team of Smith & Wesson.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        She should have called the police. They would have interviewed the black bastard, who would have denied having sex with the woman — they are inveterate liars — at which point the police would produce the DNA evidence, but it would be too late to claim “consensual” sex.

        Cops know how to deal with “Africanus Criminalis.”

        • Bill Moore

          Hello Earl P. Holt III,

          Who should have called the police? The woman who was raped – I doubt that she was in any condition to do that. The daughter who learned about it a week or two later? The workers at the hospital who have probably learned to keep their mouth shut if they want to keep their job?

          Why do they have male Africans around female hospital patients anyway? We all know that male Africans can’t control themselves around Caucasian women. Or anywhere else.

            Based upon my experience with our marvelous healthcare system, I’m guessing most of the “workers” were also black.

            “Don’t snitch” is one of the few rules the average black person is capable of obeying.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            When I replied to your comment, you didn’t say a thing about the daughter discovering the fact of the rape until two weeks later…

    • Hammerheart

      This happens more than the media will lead you to believe. Ever notice retirement communities are starting to really invest in private security?

      Elderly women are viewed as low hanging fruit, and an old white woman is still a white woman in the eyes of these villains.

  • There have only been two cases for as long as I’ve been paying attention to the news that an exceptionally elderly woman was raped and the perp wasn’t a young black.

    • connorhus

      Really? I cannot remember even one instance of a White criminal raping the elderly. Not saying I don’t believe you, I must have missed them cause it would have made an impression.

      • One white, one Hispanic. Other than that, all black.

      • Cheri Rodriguez

        More than half of Albert DeSalvo’s (The Boston Strangler’s) victims were in their 50s, 60s and 70s. One was 85 but she dropped dead of fright before he could rape & strangle her.

        • connorhus

          Well if ya have to go back over 50 years to find one White serial killer who sexually assaulted a senior citizen I think that is saying something of it’s own.

          And 60’s doesn’t really compare to 93 either IMO.

          Not saying it doesn’t happen but what would that make it less than .00000001% of the times Blacks sexually assault their elderly victims?

    • Luca

      Really? Not black? What then, mulatto?

      • NoMosqueHere

    • LHathaway

      I notice in a lot of these youtube sentencing videos . . . when crimes take place (not necessarily rapes of the very elderly) there is at least one black in among the group of perps (usually 2 or 3 of them in total). I guess if you’re a young White, it would just be racist not to defer and go along with them. How uncool it would be. And unmanly.

  • NoMosqueHere

    These are the racist hazards of living in a diverse society. Whites are still the majority in the US. Imagine the racist savagery that will be unleashed against us when we are a despised minority?

    • Rhialto

      I don’t have to imagine; I just observe the White plight in South Africa.

  • B.A_2014

    The beast will probably claim she was dressing provocatively.

      She gave a brotha that “come hither” gait with her walker I am sure.

  • There is no doubt in my mind he would have killed her if she hadn’t summoned help. God bless that poor lady and may this disgusting black be given the Old Yeller treatment.

    • Asking again, after having the first question deleted without comment: why was my original post edited? It said “beast,” not “black.”

    • So this happened:

      • Wow… didnt know discus allowed others to modify your words… makes me reconsider posting a bit. Think of the potential for a malicious individual to “frame” someone by editing their words. Or just change the overall tone of comments as a whole.

        • Yes, it’s unsettling. I wonder now how often this happens? This isn’t the first time for me.

  • baldowl

    This sort of crime is not a sex crime. It’s a racially motivated hate crime. If there’d been a four-year-old white girl around, this thing would’ve raped her instead of or in addition to.

  • BillMiller66

    When I read the headline I knew right away that the perp had to be one of Obama’s sons.

    • John Smith

      Occasionally a white may rape an old woman, but it seems a negroid speciality.

  • Who Me?

    Most 93 year old ladies are pretty frail. The back injuries she suffered from this attack will probably directly or indirectly hasten her end. Can this unspeakable savage then be tried for her murder? Wonder what drugs he was high on to be unaffected by the taser? I never heard of anything but PCP (angel dust) having that effect.

    • KyraNelson

      Except he was ” unarmed,” and “innocent.” A veritable gentle f*cking giant. A hero among men yada yada-wait! I hear the sound of glass smashing! I smell smoke! That mean white guy’s evil magnetized skull stole my hammer….

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    What a sick animal this negro must be to rape a blind 93 year old woman. The jungle really comes out of these negroes when they are in heat.

    When three Duke boys were accused of sexually assaulting a black woman we had to see their photos for a couple of months everyday even if there was not any official verdict….

      Whites are guilty until proven innocent in the court of MSM opinion.

  • Budd Smith

    Mr Leandre was TASED and BEATEN by 4 racist white cops. It’s getting so blacks can’t even wrestle white cops for their guns, or rape 93 year old white blind women without being beaten down by the white man. Justice for Clyde! Hands up, don’t shoot! Justice for Trayvon! Free the Jena 6! Blacks want the freedom to live like the savages they really are.

  • KyraNelson

    A fine example of Throwaway People. Yo- your mom threw you away. Don’t take it out on us!

  • MrEd

    I am a former Delray Beach resident. The town is on the Atlantic ocean and is a quaint as Carmel by the Sea in California. $500,000 automobiles are a common sight. The weather is nearly perfect. Unfortunately, the town and surrounding area is about 1/3 black and most of them are from Haiti. Many schools in and around Delray Beach are 100% black, and the area around the 95 corridor were most of the Haitians live is an absolute black cesspool as bad as Detroit or Chicago. I am not surprised by this article. The government is bringing in tens of thousands of additional Caribbean blacks in 2015.

  • How many more times will this happen before we say enough. This filth deserves to die.

    • (This is a copy paste of a portion of a post elsewhere, which i think is even more relevant on this story.)

      We sit here, typing, posting, whining and complaining while our fathers, mothers, siblings, children, friends and loved ones are literally being slaughtered, raped and robbed by “diverse” filth. You only get so many tries to plead with the creature about to stab you before you’re dead, we only have so many chances to force a change before we are overwhelmed by sheer numbers.

      I think many of us, here and elsewhere are blinded by a sense of our own former greatness, if theres any truth to the inane term “white privilege” it’s in the apparent mindset that eventually something will just magically change to fix the country, and rhe world, and the simple fact is that it won’t. Is ANYTHING getting BETTER have whites as a group gained ANY real, tangible foothold for the preservation of our people? The northwest front is a joke, Europe has mild stirrings of discontent that will be easily put down with political tapdancing and temporary appeasals, they will tone things down just enough to put them to sleep, to stall just long enough for us to no longer have the numbers needed to do anything.

      We need to force a change, not merely talk about how bad things are, we need to put our collective foot down and stand our ground. We may yet have the numbers to do this peacefully, for the most part. We need to march, and protest, and scream outrage at the injustices heaped upon us instead of espousing the ridiculous and pathetic christian value of “turning the other cheek”.

      They are MURDERING us in our homes, on the streets, taking our hard earned prosperity, the very rights granted us by the Constitution, as well as those granted us merely by existing, how much does it take for us to say ENOUGH.

      Your attitude is weakness, and weakness can only lead to defeat.

      • voiceofstl

        Its easy to say..but if your a family man you will be fired by your white boss. Even going to a protest march is enough to have your life ruined.

    Didn’t rape used to be a capital crime? And he kept on trying to rape her even after people were trying to pull him away? Disgusting.

    • John Smith

      Into the 1960s even, when the last rapist was gassed in Missouri for raping a little girl and the Army hanged a negro soldier for raping an Austrian child. You might have an excuse that mitigates a murder, but I can’t think of any for rape, especially of children.

      • InAFreeCountry

        It should be reinstated then, as long as proof is beyond a shadow of a doubt. I had a friend that got burned on buyer’s remorse, he (a townie) and this college chick were drunk, and I guess she thought better of it the next day. He did a year for it.
        The death penalty might be a better deterrent than just being able to go lift weights and get swole for a few years.

    Hello generalquagmyer.

    An interesting take.

    Thank you,
    Bill Moore


    Seriously though. Has anyone ever seen or heard of a White male brutally rape an elderly black woman like this? Because I sure as hell haven’t, and these horrific black on White crimes are not some rare occurrence either. These things happen constantly to our elderly parents, grand parents and great grand parents all across the country. Yet, in keeping with it’s usually MO the mainstream media ignores it. However, you can imagine the hell that would endlessly be raised if the racial make up of these vicious assaults wwere switched.

    • Spikeygrrl

      Any young, strong man who chooses an elderly, disabled woman to rape has a lot more wrong with him than garden-variety black criminality. You don’t gain street cred by an act like this, you lose it.

      I hope they’re doing a comprehensive drug screen on his corpse. PCP, anyone?

      • Who Me?

        Unfortunately there is no corpse, he didn’t get killed.

        • Spikeygrrl

          Too bad! 🙁

    • Who Me?

      Used to be a woman reached a certain age she could quit worrying about rape. You might be more likely to get whacked over the head for the 75 cents in your purse, but you weren’t going to be raped and beaten to death in the process.

    These filthy, perverted fiends need to be exterminated. We need to go back to the days when cops used “throw down” knives and guns. They would have drilled this bastard and then placed the weapon in his hand.
    According to his name I’d bet that he’s a Haitian. They’re from a Caribbean microcosm of Africa who got their independence by committing genocide and infanticide against the French colonials and their children and of course, rape.
    He should be stripped naked and have an accelerant poured on his genitals and set on fire.

  • Cid Campeador

    He should have been shot immediately. Haitians are Caribbean Africans whose instinct for violence is innate. Read about what they did to the French colonists.
    Two S. African “youths” raped a female dog and injured her so badly that she had to be euthanized.

    Senior white women suffer sex crimes in the hands of black men just as younger white women do, if not more.

    Eve Carson, who was a brilliantly beautiful young white woman who served as the student body president at UNC, was murdered by two black men. Her autopsy revealed that she was not sexually assaulted. I was bewildered with a couple of things – first, how cruel their crime was, and second, how idiotic those criminals were on top of their cruelty. If they only had only taken her money, but not murdered her, they would have been released from jail a few years ago. But they mercilessly and foolishly murdered her, which ended up giving them life sentences without parole.

    Possible reasons senior white women suffer sex crimes in the hands of black men just as often as younger white women do in the hands of black males – Younger women are more on guard of themselves and can resist or run away when a black male makes a sex crime attempt, and when a black male sexually assaults a white female, it is motivated by his intent to hurt the woman, rather than an intent to satisfy himself sexually


    • Cid Campeador

      She put up her hand as if to protect her face when the pointed the gun at her. Before they shot her she asked them to pray with her. Typical of a poor girl who was raised to think that everyone is redeemable. Such a sweetheart, sacrificed on the altar of DIEversity along with so many others. Neither of these bastards will face the death penalty. Same with LeTalvus Cobbins and LeMaricus Davidson nor the Carr brothers nor Arthur Bomar who kidnapped, raped and murdered Amy Willard and dumped her battered nude body in a trash strewn vacant lot in North Filthadelphia in the wee hours of the morning,
      I’m thinking that the only answer is revenge wrought by the families of the victims. This war has been raging for decades and it’s time for Aux Armes Citoyens.
      I can imagine how the survivors of these murdered because they were White innocents must relive the horrors every day of their lives.

    This man is 22, which means he is legally an adult
    This man used a weapon while committing his crime which can increase his legal punishment by 100% or more
    This man committed a crime against a person with a disability

    My prediction – 40 years with a chance of parole after 25 years

    What is everyone else’s prediction on the length of his sentence?

    • Who Me?

      He’ll be sentenced to 20 years, serve 7 years or less with time off for “good behavior”, and be back out on the streets terrorizing more innocent White civilians before he turns 30.

    • Cid Campeador

      My wish is that he should be castrated and hobbled so that he won’t be able to escape from the Aryan Brotherhood blokes that he will encounter in the joint.

  • dd121

    In more civilized times the neighbors employed a rope and a tree to deal with this sort of problem.

  • Cid Campeador

    I agree 100%. How many of these surviving victims wind up taking their OWN lives?
