Police have arrested two sex pests who heartlessly gang-raped a mentally handicapped woman in Lamu County while masquerading as Good Samaritans.
Shadrack Murimi Maina, 45 and Hiribae Kokane, 43, subjected the woman to the dreadful act in an abandoned house in the Sina Mbio area.
“The sex perverts, accompanied by a Nyumba Kumi elder Samuel Ngumi, were on foot patrol when they bumped into the middle-aged woman preparing tea in the crime-prone area. She had a loaf of bread,” the police said.
Fearing for her safety, Ngumi told the two men to watch over her as he went to seek help.
However, Ngumi got a shock of his life when he returned to the spot and caught Murimi on the act of raping the intellectually disabled woman. Kokane had already taken his turn and fled the scene. The incident happened between 8am and 9am on Monday.
With the help of residents, Ngumi rescued the woman and alerted the police. Murimi and Kokane were swiftly arrested and locked up behind bars. They’ll face rape charges once our detectives finalize investigations.
The officers took the terrified victim to the nearby Hindi Magogoni Dispensary for medical examination. The rapists were also subjected to a medical examination.
“To stem the rising cases of rape and defilement, the DCI wishes to caution men who prey on innocent women and girls that their days are numbered,” the police said.
