A 46-year-old man from Gitugi Village in Mbeere South Constituency, Embu County has been arrested on suspicion of raping a 12-year-old mentally ill girl.

Area chief Joseph Muchiri said the suspect Martin Kinyua Kimotho found the girl had collapsed outside her parents’ house and carried her to a nearby thicket, where he allegedly raped her.

Muchiri said “the victim often suffers epileptic attacks”.

Medical test results showed that Kimotho indeed sexually defiled the minor.

The suspect is being held at Kiritiri Police Station waiting to be arraigned in court.
