Two people have been arrested for sexually assaulting first year student at a Kitui-based university.
According to Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI), the two suspects identified as Biron Orwa and Samwel Mulama were caught in the beastly act, as the university student who was intoxicated lay helpless on a bed at Diani Apartments in Kitui’s Kwa Vonza market.
“An 18-year-old first year student at a Kitui-based university, was last night rescued by police officers from two men who had taken her hostage and raped her in turns,” stated DCI.
Sleuths said that the three had been spotted at Monte Christo Bar in the town where it is believed that the lady was stupefied before she was dragged to one of the suspects’ room.
After some rounds of alcohol, the boyfriend who was drunk at the time left for his house, leaving the victim with the two friends who sexually assaulted her.
“Orwa and Mulama then seized the opportunity and dragged the victim to the room where they inhumanly raped her in turns,” said DCI.
According to the police, they swiftly responded by storming the room and busted one of the suspects cringed under the bed trembling, after being informed that two men had been spotted dragging a young woman who could barely support herself.
The second suspect was arrested at the bar where he had gone to collect the victim’s shoes and part of her clothings which they had left behind after partly undressing her.
The lady was taken to Kitui General hospital in serious condition for tests and medical attention, while the two suspects also underwent medical examination.
The two suspects will be arraigned in court today to answer to rape charges.
“DCI is cautioning the public especially young ladies to be wary of the company they keep, since stupefying cases that lead to rape and other felonies are on the rise,” said DCI.
