He grabbed me, put my back on the bed before raping me — 81-yr-old woman narrates how she was raped by grand nephew

An 81-year-old elderly Brooklyn woman has tearfully recounted how her 36-year-old great-nephew, Jewell Powell raped her.

Testifying at the man’s trial in Brooklyn Supreme Court on Wednesday, May 5th, the elderly woman revealed recounted Powell attacked her while she let him stay in her home.

According to New York Daily News, the victim allowed Powell to live on her couch for about a month in 2019 but on June 13, 2019, everything changed.

She stated that on that fateful day she went to the kitchen only to meet him there naked. He allegedly grabbed her, dragged her to the bedroom and raped her.

In her words;

“He was my favorite,” she testified. “I hate him.

“I was in my bedroom watching TV. I got up to go to the kitchen. He was there naked. He grabbed me, Powell then dragged me to the bedroom and raped me.

According to her, she fought back, which annoyed Powell the more.

“When I kicked him, he put me back on the bed, put his hands on my throat and said, ‘Next time you do that I’ll smother you,’” she said.

Afterward, Powell gave his great-aunt a knife and told her to kill him, the woman told the court. When she refused to, he threatened to kill himself, she said.

She later revealed the incident to her grandson and daughter who reported him to police. Powell was arrested two days later and has been held at Rikers Island on $70,000 bail since.
