Man defiles a minor in Lugari

23 May 2013, 13:17 Jayne Pamba

Lugari - A 72-year-old man is being held at Lugari police patrol base awaiting to face charges in court after he allegedly defiled a minor at their home in Mavanga village, Lugari district Kakamega county.

Confirming the incident, Lugari sub-location assistant chief Shadrack  Miheso said that the suspect, Abraham Musumba was left alone with his grandchild at home before luring her into the act and threatened her not to disclose to anyone.

The 5-year-old child was rushed to Lumakanda district hospital immediately and medical reports confirmed that she was indeed defiled.

The suspect escaped on Sunday after committing the offense but was arrested yesterday evening in Lugari.

The assistant chief has urged locals to report similar cases saying that they have been rampant in the area.

"Most people here are not brave enough to report rape and defilement cases,they fear being shunned by members of the community," Miheso lamented.
