Tuk Tuk rider in custody for attempting to defile minor

Police in Mombasa County have arrested a Tuk-Tuk rider on suspicion of attempted defilement of an eight-year-old girl in Shanzu area.

Mombasa county police commander Johnston Ipara revealed that the suspect had been hired by the minor’s father to take her to school in Changamwe area Wednesday morning.

The rider, however, diverted the Tuk-Tuk to the northern part of Mombasa, where he was caught in a bush attempting to defile the girl.

Irate residents alerted the police, who moved to the scene and arrested the suspect.

Ipara appealed to parents to be careful when handing their children to strangers to avert such cases in the future.
