A 25 year old man has been arraigned before a Nyahururu court facing charges of defiling a 16 year old girl.
The accused, Bernard Karanja, is alleged to have defiled the girl on April 14 at Starehe Estate in Nyahururu town.
The court further heard that the man had allegedly seduced her into his house only to turn wild, defiling her on his doorstep.
The man threatened her, but the girl informed her parents who reported the matter to Nyahururu police station leading to arrest of the accused.
He however denied the charges and was released on a KES 200 000 bond with a surety of similar amount. Since he could not raise the amount, he was escorted to Nyahururu Remand Prison.
