A 45-year-old man from Ikuuni village in Mwala sub-county of Machakos County has been arrested for raping a 77-year-old mentally ill woman.
According to the granny’s son the man known as Joseph Muema sneaked into his grandmother’s house to do the heinous act.
The granny’s son caught him in the act at around 11 pm when he had gone to check on his mother.
After the son caught the suspect, he ran away and left his trouser and shoes which made it easier for residents to track him and bring him to the police station.
The two are now at Mbiuni Level 4 Hospital where medical tests are being done for medical reports.
The culprit is also set to remain under police custody waiting to be arraigned in court tomorrow.
