A 55-year-old man is in police custody in Nyandarua for allegedly defiling his stepdaughter.
Cops arrested the man after the teenage girl reported to her teachers that her father has been sexually abusing her. She said the father had been defiling her for the last two years with the full knowledge of her mother.
The girl’s teachers then informed village elder Grace Muthoni seeking her intervention on the matter.
“I went to the school and found the girl had difficulties in walking,” Ms Muthoni said.
“I accompanied the victim to Ol Kalou Police Station where we reported the matter before taking her to JM Level Four Hospital.”
Confirming the suspect’s arrest, Nyandarua Central deputy police boss Florence Karimi said the girl is in safe hands now.
“The suspect will be arraigned immediately police complete investigation,” Ms Karimi said.
