A man has been arrested for allegedly raping a 90-year-old woman in Bomet East.

The suspect, aged 21, was nabbed in his hideout at Mulot trading centre on Thursday evening after a daylong manhunt by members of Nyumba Kumi.

He is said to have broken into the house of the granny in the dead of the night. Children who had paid their grandmother a visit heard the commotion and raised the alarm.

Joseph Too, a neighbour, said the children positively identified the suspect as he escaped through the window.
