A man was on Wednesday, May 12 morning arrested after he allegedly defiled a schoolgirl in Ngecha area of Kiambu County.
It all started when the man offered two students a lift to school in his car in the morning.
One of the girls alighted upon reaching St Pauls Secondary School in Kabuku, while the other proceeded with the journey as she was schooling at the neighbouring Manguo Secondary School.
But instead of the man, who says that he is a doctor, driving towards the school, he diverted to the bushes where he committed the beastly act.
He reportedly threatened to kill the girl before driving off with her, this time he took the Limuru-Kiambu Road.
Defiled brave girl rescues herself
The brave girl, however, saw an opportunity to rescue herself when he sighted people working on an expansive tea plantation in Kiawaroga Estate. She screamed for help and at the same time holding the steering wheel firmly.
This led to the driver losing control of the vehicle, landing into a ditch by the roadside.
The tea pickers started screaming and running towards the car and upon realising what had transpired, they descended on the man, beating him mercilessly.
Were it not for police officers who arrived at the scene fast, the man could have been killed in mob justice. He was arrested and taken to Tigoni Police Station.
Meanwhile, the defiled girl was rushed to hospital and is currently receiving medical attention.
