Kenyan man rapes disabled woman, tries to kill self in US

07 September 2015, 17:21 William Korir

Nairobi - A Kenyan man in the US has been arrested for raping a disabled woman and then trying to kill himself afterwards, reports Seattle PI.

Prosecutors claim Samuel K Njuguna, a nurse raped the 65-year-old woman on June 30 this year. Njuguna, 20, then left Seattle for Las Vegas, where he was found hospitalized after a suicide attempt.

Police launched an investigation on June 30 after a worker at the home in which the woman was found evidence she had been sexually assaulted.

Police described the woman as blind, deaf and severely mentally disabled. She can only express herself through hand signals.

The report continues to state that the woman had been living at the home shared with two other people with similar disabilities.

Five of the six men working in the home voluntarily gave DNA samples to investigators, the detective said in charging papers. The sixth – Njuguna – declined to do so and left for Las Vegas after learning police were investigating the matter.

Police then obtained a warrant for Njuguna’s DNA. They tracked him to a Las Vegas hospital, where he’d been receiving treatment after trying to kill himself.
