BY ALY ABICH IN HOMA BAY COUNTY.
Police in Homa Bay County are looking for a 16-year-old boy, who defiled an 11-year-old girl at Kamuombo Village in Rangwe.
The incident happened inside the girl’s parents’ house. Besides the victim, a Class Five pupil, and the suspect, a Class Seven pupil, no one else was at home.
The girl’s mother says she had gone to attend a relative’s burial in Suba South Constituency, when the incident happened.
The victim’s mother claims the boy sneaked into her house, where he found the girl sleeping on a couch in the living room.
“He, thereafter, bundled her into the bedroom, where he covered her mouth and defiled her repeatedly, leaving her bleeding profusely from the genitals,” said the victim’s mother.
The girl was rushed to Janeiro Private Hospital in Nyagweso, where she was treated and discharged.
Confirming the incident, area chief Salome Omollo said the suspect escaped to an unknown place after committing the act.
