April 6, 2023

Police in Machakos have arrested a 45-year-old man who was caught in the act raping an elderly woman in Mwala Constituency.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said the suspect, Joseph Muema, sneaked into the 77-year-old woman’s house in Ikuuni village on Tuesday night.

Police added that the victim’s son went to check on his mentally ill mother at around 11 pm when he found the suspect in the act.

“The son’s arrival prompted Muema to escape leading to a chase, but the reportee was overpowered by the fleeing suspect prompting him to call police for assistance, the DCI said.

While fleeing, the sex pest left behind his pair of trousers and sandals which helped the police track him down.

Following his arrest, the suspect and the victim were escorted to Mbiuni Level 4 Hospital where medical tests confirmed the sexual assault.

“The suspect is currently in custody being processed to face rape charges,” said the DCI.
