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.
