Two men suspected of defiling a 16-year-old girl after locking her up at a lodging in Sotik, Bomet County have been arrested.
Linus Nyakundi, 19 and Danface Makori, 22, were spotted by a concerned member of the public at Sudan Lodging within Sotik’s Tembwo trading centre, who reported to the area assistant chief.
To ascertain the information, the assistant chief headed to the said lodging where he found the suspects having locked themselves in a room, and unwilling to open.
“The suspects, however, gave way and surrendered upon arrival of Sotik-based police, whereafter the rescued girl studying at a local high school was escorted to hospital for medical attention,” stated Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI).
Meanwhile in Kilungu, Makueni County, a 50-year-old man reported to have defiled his 10-year-old daughter while her mother was away is behind bars.
John Muema Ndilu was arrested yesterday afternoon, after the grade three pupil in company of the mother booked the report at Kola Police Station.
According to DCI, Muema had on September 28, 2021 committed the abominable act while his wife, 36, was away fetching water, before threatening to kill the minor if she dared report the incident to anyone.
“It was until today (Tuesday) that the girl opened up to her mother, who in turn escorted the daughter to book the report,” stated DCI.
The girl has been taken to a local hospital for medical examination, pending further police action.
