Detectives have launched a manhunt for a suspect who r*ped his 90-year-old mother on October 20, 2021, in Mbooni-Makueni county, Kenya before going into hiding.
It is reported that the octogenarian was found in her bedroom by her eldest son writhing in pain, complaining of waist pains.
In a report by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, the suspect, a 45-year-old, is said to have invaded the lady’s house at 8:00 pm before committing the heinous act.
“She tearfully narrated her harrowing ordeal in the hands of her younger son Patrick Mumo, 45, who forced his way into her bedroom at around 8:00 pm as she slept and subjected her to the beastly act,” the statement read in part.
Police report that the lady was immediately rushed to Kisau Sub-county hospital in serious condition, where she is currently undergoing treatment.
Doctors at the medical facility have since confirmed that indeed she had been r*ped.
Detectives have sent an appeal to Patrick Mumo Ngenge to give himself up at the earliest available opportunity before the long arm of the law catches up with him.
