A middle-aged man has been arrested after he was caught sodomising a 12-year-old boy in a lodging in Busia Town on Tuesday, December 20.
The victim was rushed to Busia County Referral Hospital for emergency treatment, where he is still admitted.
According to eye witnesses, the boy was rescued from his aggressor when screams were heard emanating from the room the suspect had booked himself in on Tuesday 9am.
When the lodging administrators broke into the room, they busted the middle-aged man in the act – fully naked.
According to the victim, a Class Seven pupil, he met the suspect at Bumala Market in Butula Constituency on Tuesday morning.
The suspect thereafter requested the boy to accompany him to a meeting with a potential employee, only for him to book a room in a guest facility and commit the heinous act.
The suspect is being held at Busia Police Station, waiting to be arraigned once investigations into the matter are concluded.
