A man caught raping a mentally retarded girl in a Naivasha estate is nursing serious wounds after a mob crushed his testicles.
The suspect, said to be a hawker, also lost some teeth before he was handed over to police.
According to a resident, the suspect entered a house pretending to sell his wares but sexually assaulted the 15-year-old girl.
"He noticed the girl’s mother was not around and attacked her," he said.
The girl’s mother found the man in the act and raised the alarm. The suspect was cornered as he attempted to flee.
"He had part of his private part crushed and some of his teeth were missing due to the beating he received," said the witness.
He said the suspect had last week attacked his wife and fled, leaving her to nurse a serious wound on her breast.
Meanwhile, residents of Rutere village in Naivasha East woke up to a rude shock when they found a body of villager floating in a dam.
The man in his late 30s and who was in the company of a friend disappeared on Thursday last week.
"We searched for him in the hospital, police station and even the morgue without success until today," said a neighbour. The OCPD said they were trying to establish whether there was foul play, adding no arrest had been made.
