Police in Kisumu arrested two teenagers who have confessed to defiling a Standard Eight girl who went missing on Tuesday, August 30.
Upon interrogation Saturday, the teenagers – both aged 17 – admitted to having carnal knowledge of the underage girl.
Officers attached to Kondele Police station claim one of the boys was caught having sex with the girl in a hideout in Katito, which is 35 kilometers away from the victim’s school.
The victim’s parents filed a report about their missing daughter at Kondele Police Station Friday after her teachers called to enquire into the girl’s whereabouts.
Police were called in after a tip-off from a neighbour who had grown curious of the boys’ strange behaviour. The officers found the victim’s school uniform and back-to-school shopping in the hideout.
The suspects were intercepted and booked into Kondele Police Station as they wait to be arraigned in court for defilement Monday, September 5.
