An 18-year-old student who snuck into a nearby girls’ secondary school has been arrested by officers from Kenya’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
The suspect, who is a pupil of Gatugi Day Secondary School in Nyeri County, was arrested while posing as a pupil of the girls’ school to meet his girlfriend.
He was reportedly dressed in a female uniform and joined a group of girls as they made their way to their dorms. The student was arrested after asking where his supposed girlfriend was
The DCI said in a statement;
“A mission by a young teenager to meet his girlfriend at a secondary school in Nyeri County last night was nipped in the bud after the 18-year-old was outed by other girls who rang the bell. The young man’s frantic efforts to trace his girlfriend among a crowd of girls marching towards their dorm did not bear any fruit.
“The girl became suspicious as the voice sounded unfamiliar and hoarse, prompting her to take a closer look at the person doing the inquiring, only to realize that the fool with the broad chest and a hairy chin was a man dressed in their school uniform. .
“She immediately started screaming, causing a cacophony of screams from the other girls, as they ran in different directions in confusion, almost causing a stampede.”
Following the commotion at school, the school guard rushed to the dorms and apprehended the suspect as he attempted to escape.
The school principal alerted law enforcement who rushed to the scene and arrested him.
When questioned, he told the police that he had been invited by his girlfriend for unspecified business. Three condoms, a mobile phone and a lighter were recovered from him.
The statement added;
“However, three condoms, a mobile phone and a lighter were recovered from the student who had stuffed pieces of clothing into his chest, to create a false impression of a female breast. He was taken to the police station in Othaya where he is being prosecuted for the offense of preparation to commit a crime.”
